2011-10-22 00:14:47 JP Wiske description Most browsers (and office suites) automatically associate accented and special characters with their standard 26-letter alphabet counterparts. For example, a search for "Nino" would also return results for "Niño", or a search for "Agaetis" would include results for "Ágætis". Right now, searches must us wildcard syntax, and menu dropdowns for authors in the "Edit Metadata" screen effectively exclude any name that has a special character in its first few letters. The recognition of non-standard English letters relative to their QWERTY counterparts seems like the kind of functionality that would naturally develop in light of Calibre's increasing support for (and recognition of) foreign language e-text. Thank you for your consideration. Most browsers (and office suites) automatically associate accented and special characters with their standard 26-letter alphabet counterparts.
