|Diacritic Marks and Accents|
How can you search for a term that might include one or more diacritics, marks, such as the umlaut (ö) in Gödel or the acute accent of resumé?
Note: For queries with diacritics, results vary depending on the language to which you are confining your search.
On the English-language version of Google, a term with an accent doesn't match a term without an accent and vice versa.
[ "école française" ] matches
"école française"  but not "ecole francaise"
[ "ecole francaise" ] matches "ecole francaise" but not "école française"
Search for pages with these different spellings.
Or combine these queries into a single one.
Note: If your keyboard doesn't have a particular character, check out the Google Ultimate Interface, which provides over two dozen diacritical markings.
