Dave, Searched *Lilium ‘Starlette’* No results.
Here's the DB entry Lily (Lilium 'Starlette')

Same search w/out single quotes works, i.e. *Lilium Starlette*. Is this a WP program character issue? This was copied from a Word 2003 doc.

*Lilium Rosella’s Dream* no results. *Lilium Rosella Dream* worked. Lily (Lilium 'Rosella's Dream')

Evan, the quotes you're using are actually backticks, not quotes, and they are interpreted differently. So, I think this is a WP character issue, as you suspected.

The backtick you're using was found under the tilde (~) on your keyboard. It shouldn't be used.

The single quote used for cultivars is located under the double-quote, usually the key to the left of the enter key.

Searching using the single quote works as expected:

Dave, I thought I had copied and pasted from web to my inventory, then to the search feature. Typed all in to check but single quotes still not working. New computer, W7, so will see if I can find out what's up. Never ran across this before.

P.S. I don't recall using the back tick before. Have to find out what it's for. Green Grin!

Edit: O.K. got it for both Starlette and Rosella's Dream. Pressing Left Ctrl + Shift. Resets keyboard or something.

Wow, that's a really strange "feature". Good job finding the solution!
