Hi Steve,

I'm not deeply involved in the current index code, but should the 
accented 'c' not beeing converted to a standard 'c' in the index?
If I enter the street names in my etrex, I can enter the base character, 
i will get all streets which contain at this position special 
characters. In german I can enter the character 'o' and even umlauts 
like 'ö' will be found. So I think at this index there should be the the 
special charcters converted to the base characters.
