The code to deal with non-ascii characters was completely not
implemented, but it should now work (apart from the fact that
the suggestions are not sorted in the standard way).

I believe that there is a problem with very small map sets
that causes problems downloading to a device, so make sure that
you are making an index from a large enough map or several maps.
