> asksam does not recognize special characters as part of a word
Something around this I tried to explain. Precisely said, the special
characters are not being recognized when choosing "Find whole words only".
Without this option, AS has got no problem to find a string like "América",
that means: The "é" is being recognized correctly. The proof is: "America"
will not be found with "América".
However, what's the solution to this? Why doesn't an ordinary editor like
WordPad have any problems with this? And askSam, specializing on text

I agree with this, as far as it refers to the Fuzzy Search. But this would
be no solutions to the problem I described. Imagine a "fuzzy search &
replace" - it would end in disaster.

asksam does not recognize special characters as part of a word
When doing a local search (within a document), askSam seems to ignore
that accented vowels like Spanish í or á or German Umlaute like äöü
are to be considered part of a word. So it finds a "lonely" s in
París (spanish for Paris) with "Find whole words only" activated.
Talking about special characters:
It would be great if askSam were able to interprete any special
character as its plain counterpart since the fuzzy option very often
behaves to "generous" (finding to much garbage).
