For those of you who are offering web-based searching of your EAD
finding aids by title or author, how are you handling special characters
in the title, subtitle, or originator (for example, the French accented
e, or German umlauted u) ?  Are you encoding those special characters in
the EAD finding aid using character entities?  If so, does it cause any
problems with indexing or searching, given that most researchers will
not have the special characters in their search string (for example,
they'll likely just use an e without the accent) ?

Thanks

Michele C.
