Search Basics

Literal (Exact) Search: Watch Out for Case and Diacritics!

To date, only an literal search can be carried out, locating data identical to search specifications. The search is case-sensitive. Diacritics and special characters must be specified exactly.
Caveat! As a rule, Romanian place names have a comma, not a cedilla, below the ‘s’ and ‘t’: Brașov, București, Iași, Galați, Orăștie, Sighișoara, Șumuleu, Tîrgu-Mureș …

Normalization of Spaces and Dashes

GW’s typography uses seven different dashes and twelve different spaces. We do not assume that everyone knows how to use them. Thus, all dashes in the search string are converted into the simple dash of the keyboard (U+002D) and all spaces into the simple space (U+0020). Consequently, a search for special dashes or spaces is impossible.

Special Characters

To learn about the input of special characters go to  Special Characters.

Search Results

Paging is used for the presentation of search results. Before starting the search, you should specify how many hits are to be displayed on a page. The more hits are on a page, the longer you have to wait until the page is displayed. The count of hits per page has a default of 10. With the listbox
Treffer pro Seite
 you can change the count to values between 1 and ‘alle’. To print all search results, ‘alle’ is the best choice.
