Special characters are filtered out of (most) "text" fields, but are 
preserved in "string" fields. String fields might suit your needs, but are 
inconvenient for keyword searching.

You may be able to use the "types" option of the WordDelimiterFilterFactory 
to pass in a custom character type table that has the special characters 
treated as alphabetic characters. Otherwise, you may have to customize the 
code yourself.

Subject: index special characters solr

Hi all
Can somebody please tell me how can I build an index in solr where one of my
field contains special characters like $ , %
I would also like to search on the same characters on that particular field.

Any advice would be appreciated.
