    Subject: Searching Special Characters

    Dear All,
    <>Is it possible to write an escape in some form or map special characters to standard Latin approximations whereby the search engine can be told to read an NCR such as &#x011F; (g-breve) as the standard latin g? I'm working on a website with english pages containing Turkish nouns and phrases but I'm concerned that browsers with conventional Western keyboards will not be able to search these terms.

    <>Any suggestions would be very welcome.
