|I noticed when "copying" a German name into the cultivar field the search engine does not translate.|
i.e. A search for (Astilbe x crispa 'Däumling') using the words "astilbe daumling" yields no results.

|The letter a is different from the letter ä. I don't yet know how to tell the search system to do this kind of fuzzy searching, it'll have to be something for my todo.|

|In the mean time, could the sytem tools character map be used?|
Start menu - all programmes - accesssories - system tools - character map.
All you do then is click on the character you want, select, then click 'copy' and you can then paste it here using a right click.

|Another option might be to add a cultivar, i.e. A. x crispa Däumling, added cultivar Daumling.|

|We have had to do that for the roses and daylilies, just change the one character so that it works with the search.|

|Did you leave the original and add a cv. or just change it?|

|In the daylily database, I just changed it for now. This was before that extra cultivar field was added. The roses I believe have both.|
