Greenstone handles non-ascii characters just fine - you can search
and retrieve accented and non-Western characters. If you are using
mgpp instead of mg (mg is the default) for the backend of your collections
then I think there is a slight problem with the search form
when using Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, although an update
to one of the macro config files fixes this. However most people
will be using mg collections anyway.
