However, many non-english languages have characters that do not fit in URLs. So one sometimes types them in the native language, sometimes a similar 7bit ascii character example (german) ä->ae, ö->oe, ü->ue, ß->ss example (french) é, è, ê -> e, œ->oe as a specific example I have given http://www.liberation.fr/ from the newspaper Libération. Imagine bookmarking a specific article on that site. Later you remember only the article has been publiced on Libération however when you type that it wont be found in the address bar because the URL writes itself with the "simple e". Search should also be vice versa ie finding a "é" when the user types "e". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Marking new to see if it is feasible.
