When creating a tag with an accent, the accent is automatically converted to an un-accented character. Example:


However, the same conversion does not happen when searching for a tag. Instead, when you enter [número] in the search box, it is converted to [nmero]. This should be made to be more consistent.

To make this question easier to find by searching let me include these terms in this comment: "accent normalization", "accent stripping", "diacritic normalization", "diacritic stripping". – hippietrail Jun 8 '12 at 20:05
@hippietrail unfortunately that doesn't work for in-site search...does for google though – Ben Brocka Jun 12 '12 at 20:53
Oh I meant Google. I rarely use the site's own search since it's not as good. – hippietrail Jun 13 '12 at 5:11

Yeah sure, this sounds like reasonable behavior to match up...starting with the next build we'll do the "normal" character replacement inside tags, rather than stripping it.
