Description

I did:Tried searching for terms Metis and Métis

I saw:Those two searches turned up different sets of results.

I expected:The same set of search results, or at least everything when
I searched for Metis.

Can search be smarter when special characters are involved?

This ticket needs to be re-reviewed. From the article in comment 1, there's alot of people both for and against different search results when there are special characters in the words used for searching.
