Hi Yonik,

    I was incorrect to describe it as _solr encoding_.  Hoss suggested that 
it might be a form error - I haven't checked this yet but it sound 
plausible.  What I called the _solr url encoding_ was the q= parameter 
translated into <I'm not sure what> encoding in the url.  As I mention in 
my ps this translated value is not the same as when I use IE to post the 
same form values.

    You mentioned in another earlier post that q=h%c3%e9 would find 
matching hits.  My experience shows that while the UTF-8 encoded query 
doesn't generate any exceptions, no results are matched.  However 
q=h%e9llo would find matching results (the result set I'd match in Luke). 
So assuming that I can fix the form encoding errors so that the characters 
are encoded as UTF-8, I believe that I would continue to return incorrect 
results.  Will cyrillic characters be treated any differently than the 
diacritic in your example?

    I have solr running in tomcat 5.5.17.

Thanks for all you help,
