Accepted Characters - Search and Registrations

In a similar post it was noted that modernized PPR uses UTF8. Further information is being requested so that our high volume API holders can guide their clients in how to best enter data.

Search - Can characters (e.g. french characters, backslash \ ) be included in a search? It was noted that characters are stripped when the search is completed but if an e with french accent was included would stripping this effectively remove the e as well? If so is the recommendation to not include special characters at all?

Registration - For registering party, secured party, debtors etc. can characters be used? French characters may exist in individual or business names. Business names can include things like \

RESPONSE: We allow special characters in search and registration and they match correctly, with the exception of french characters, which should not be used.
