This has happened to me at least one other time recently. I search on a name in the database and it says it can’t find it, did I mean - exactly the same thing I typed. Am I missing something?

I can't replicate this problem. Would it be possible for you to link me to a search results page that shows this happening?

How did you make that quote mark? That's not a normal single quote character.

I did it with a Belkin bluetooth keyboard with my iPad. The key has double quotes on shift and single quote without shift.

I tried it again using the iPad’s virtual keyboard instead of the bluetooth one and got the same result.

That's interesting. The ipad is creating a non-standard quote symbol and that's not being seen as the normal one. Well, now that I know this, maybe I can fix it. I'll look into it.

I see this kind of thing happen on google, too, and assumed that Dave's reply is what is happening. I had an email program that didn't recognize apostrophes in some inbox messages, and it always turned them into a string of non-alphabet characters.

I just tried the same search on my Android phone and it brought up the right result, no problem. On the bright side, at least the NGA database was smart enough to know what I meant on the iPad even though the symbol was wrong Smiling

I've updated the system. It shouldn't have any further problem with the strange Apple quote marks. Smiling

Those are "smart" quotes. When I was working for the government and producing camera-ready copy, I had to turn off all of the "smart" keys on MS Word because they tended to turn into odd characters.
