    Your bug report is missing several pretty important pieces
    of information:
    1) What version of ht://Dig are you running?
    See http://www.htdig.org/FAQ.html#q5.33
    2) What encoding are you using in your documents?
    3) What locale have you configured htdig and htsearch to use?
    See http://www.htdig.org/FAQ.html#q4.10
    and http://www.htdig.org/FAQ.html#q5.8
    Is this locale's encoding compatible with that used in
    your documents?

    As it's not clear that this is really a bug, rather than a
    configuration
    problem, I suggest you discuss the issue on htdig-general,
    giving as
    much detail as possible. Can you also provide a sample
    document and
    show how it appears in search results?

    Please don't muck around with the Assigned To and Priority
    fields.
    Leave that up to the developers, who have a better idea of who's
    qualified and able to deal with a problem, and how important
    it is in
    the grand scheme of things.
