Issue searching for names featuring accents

There is a serious search issue, namely that unless a search term contains exactly the accent or non-standard character which appears in the constituent name as recorded, the record will not be retrieved. For example, searching for Esmee retrieves one record, searching for Esmée retrieves a different record, and so on. This inevitably means that constituent searches will retrieve an incomplete set of matches, and duplicate records may be created as a consequence.

    Fuzzy search tends to find these constituents, however, it also widens the search in a large manner, and pulls up a lot of 'fluff'.  Having standard diacritic/accent substitutions in the search logic would be a great thing!
