Hi Patrick

diacritics should work in metadata in item files as long as they are
saved with utf-8 encoding. what version of greenstone are you using? In
2.71 we fixed a bug where a byte order marker was mucking up parsing of
the XML file.
Are you using XML or text style item files?
There may be problems if the image file names have diacritics.
Are you using GLI? Try switching to expert mode and rebuilding - what
errors do you get?
What platform are you using?
You could send me a couple of item files that don't work and I'll try
them here.

The "search for particular words..." is defined in english.dm.
_textSearchhelp_ macro. (in 2.71)

If you want to find any text macros, the best thing to do is search for
the english text in english.dm (or english2.dm) - all text macros are
defined in these files. Then you can add the appropriate macro into the
french.dm file.

Regards,
Katherine
