Subject: Search Engine has an issue with international characters

Namely, it doesn't support them, so searches for things like grünerløkka and grønland are moot.

I will look at expanding the allowed character set for search strings to take into account internationalization. We need to see if there are issues with Search::InvertedIndex?, and make sure that it tokenizes in an i18n way.

Work on this should probably be concentrated on Plucene - see other utf8 bugs in OpenGuides though.

Doing the search with accented characters: hotel/hôtel the keyword hôtel doesn't even appear in the search title, where hotel does. Otherwise accented characters are displayed properly using sqlite.
