http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/xpfe/components/search/datasets/google.src Google server can accept UTF-8. Mozilla's google.src file can send UTF-8 which allows the user to search characters not included in ISO-8859-1. Two changes are needed. Add queryCharset="UTF-8" to search section to mozilla to generate UTF-8 query. Add <input name="ie" value="UTF-8"> to notify the server the charset of the query.
Also need to add output charset, so the result page is returned as UTF-8 too. <input name="oe" value="UTF-8"> and in interpret section, charset="UTF-8" Doing this has a problem when the result page is not return as UTF-8. That can happen when google search is invoked non UTF-8 pages (e.g. http://wp.netscape.com/zh-cn/). We need to change internet search code to parse the charset of the result page and override the default value specified in the .src file.
