If I spell a my seach item wrong, wikipedia tells me that
there exists no article like that. It would be great if
alternatives of items were offered. E.g. if one
writes "Frida Kaloh", there would be some offers of items
that differ only little from the written one and do exist,
like "Do you mean "Frida Kahlo"? "
I really love wikipedia for university! I recommend it to
my friends!

    most time an unsuccessfull search is caused by case
    sensitivity. If an article could not be found it should be
    searched caseinsensitiv and where possible ignoring white
    space and converting special characters to ascii (possibly
    this should be the preferred search method)
