[Perlfect-search] umlaut-problem

hi list,

i have two questions (again):

is it possible that your is not able
to detect searchqueries like "*ger�t*" ?
the searchquery "*gerat*" works...but most people in germany
would like to use german-umlauts(?;-)

if i search for the string "*gerat* i also get result-pages with
a string like "...ger�t..."(gerä), because indexing
converts this. if the search-script now wants to print out
the context, the string "gerat" cannot be found in the page (that is right),
but this page appears in the result-listing (some kind of false alarm).

maybe it be helpful to fix the indexing-script by including those umlauts,
what is your opinion?

best regards,
