reporter, please give me an exact search string (tell me what to type) that demonstrates the problem for you.
Tehe search string I used was "Челябинск" (it should be in KOI-8 here), it's in Russian, name of a city -- "Chelyabinsk". The query is being converted into http://google.netscape.com/netscape?query=%D0%A7%D0%B5%D0%BB%D1%8F%D0%B1%D0%B8%D 0%BD%D1%81%D0%BA or http://search.aol.com/dirsearch.adp?query=%D0%A7%D0%B5%D0%BB%D1%8F%D0%B1%D0%B8%D 0%BD%D1%81%D0%BA If I type In the input provided on the searcher's page it converts the same word into http://google.netscape.com/netscape?query=%C7%D5%DB%EF%D1%D8%DD%E1%DA and works fine. I.e. Mozilla's search URL-encodes the query as UTF8 string (which is default behaviour for XUL), but all the search engines do work with some native encoding.

Adding Linda Baliman to cc: list. Linda please investigate this issue with IQA and engineering. We need to know how severe this issue is, and its impact on the UE to determine if it should be nominated for nsbeta3.
For the side bar search, search description files (i.e. sherlock file) are needed per charsets. A charset can be specified in the description file (a document is available, http://www.mozilla.org/projects/intl/internet_search_charset_spec.html). If no charset is specified in the description file then "ISO-8859-1" is used. Mark as invalid since the search description files in the current US build works for non English such as French and German. If Russian support is needed then a new search description file can be added. I don't know if we have a Russian lang-pack, adding tao for lang-pack issue.
