Ticket #894 (closed defect: fixed)
Search for special (non-ascii) characters is strange
|Reported by:||zenogantner||Owned by:|
When I enter the following text:
muss muß müssen muessen
and then try to find "muß", I only get a match for "muss", but not for the exact string, "muß". "ß" is the German "s-zett", a very common character in German texts.
So there are two things that are broken/strange here:
- Not being able to find the string "muß" with the query "muß"
- There seems to be an automatic conversion/extension "ß" -> "ss", which may lead to false positives. Users should be able to disable that behavior.
Umlaut search seems to be broken, too.
"müssen" does not lead to a match, either.
I observed the same behavior for both the normal and the incremental search, no matter which options (case insensitive, regexp) were chosen.
The text (attached) is in UTF-8, both according to Padre and my file command. Same behaviour for ISO-8859-15 (western, also attached).
