Accent Characters

The search tool is sensitive to accent charters such as the umlaut double dots such as . These charters can be written into the typically author field using alt codes such as Alt + 0246 for the o umlunt.

This is achieved holding down the Alt Key on a Windows computer, and simultaneously typing the number code including the leading zero, then releasing the Alt Key. The character should then appear.

Note that some authors modified their names to replace the umlunt by placing a trailing e. For example Bge may have been written as Boege by the author.
