How do I search using non-English characters?

Here are a couple of things to check when using non-English language characters:

1. Please ensure that the collection was created with the correct language.

2. Also, make sure that the fe parameter is set appropriately in the search form.

This should be set to UTF-8 if your search form is encoded as UTF-8

The fe parameter specifies the encoding for the search form. Here is an
example:

**Code:**

<FORM name="search" action="servlet/SearchServlet" method="GET">

<!-- Encoding of the Search Page -->
<input type="hidden" name="fe"
value="euc-kr" /> <!-- Specify the sort option to be used --> <!-- Valid sort options are
date - sort results by date
relevance - sort results by relevance
alpha - sort results alphabetically
--> <input type="hidden" name="sort" value="" /> <!-- Specify the collections to be used
Multiple collections can be specified as:
<input type="hidden" name="col" value="1" />
<input type="hidden" name="col" value="2" />
-->
<div id="collectionIds"></div>

<!-- Specify the XSL to be used to display search results
Setting this value to "xml" displays search results as XML

Note: This option is not available in the SearchBlox FREE Edition

--> <input type="hidden" name="xsl" value="" />
