Swish-e: Problems with Non-ASCII-Chars (e.g. German Umlaut)

I've made some enhancements to swish-e 1.1 to index Non-Text or HTML files
(e.g. to get PDF-files indexed) [I've sent the code changes to Roy].

But I've got some problems searching words with german umlauts in the swish 
database. The problems also occurs when searching for words (with umlauts) 
in simple html pages.

The non ascii chars are done using ISO coding within the cgi search script / 
html form.

Are there any known problems or any solutions?
