Entering text into the second input for ‘from’, doesn’t work (Safari 4), because the UTF-8 string is interpreted as ISO 8859-1, e.g. my surname ‘Päper’ shows as ‘Päper’ – without matches, obviously.

(I will use ‘«’ as a start of string marker and ‘»’ as an end of string marker in the rest of this mail.)

«‘foo’» «'foo'» «"foo"» «“foo”» «|foo|» «<foo>» «$foo» etc. should all be findable, but «foo» only finds «foo», «'foo'» and «"foo"», whereas «'foo'» finds «'foo'» only, neither «foo» nor «"foo"», and a search for «‘foo’» finds nothing, not even «‘foo’» itself.

I wish this could be fixed, although I can somewhat work around this using external search engines.

Also, it should be possible to filter mailing lists by Subject tags, i.e. text surrounded by square brackets, e.g. «[css3-color]».

Kind regards

PS: Will you celebrate the millionth public posting to one of W3C’s mailing lists and when is it expected to occur? (960,421 currently.)
