You replace the default site context search box with a custom site context search box that uses Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server search results. When you use this custom site context search box to search a document that has special characters, you receive an invalid search result.

When you do this, you receive an invalid search result. Additionally, when you view the custom site context search box, you find that the word "veröffentlichten" is missing the "ö" character.
