Site search doesn't match diacritically-marked characters with unmarked

Somebody asked about their Citroën. Searching on Citroen didn’t match. Additionally the search dialogue box didn’t html metacharacters.

search has never worked for me

Citroen means “lemon” in Dutch! However the Dutch don’t call a bad car a “citroen” or lemon. They call it something unprintable!

Admittedly, I haven’t used the search function on this site for a very long time, but that is because of so many instances of the search function not working very well.
