Hello. I use Search Core Results web part to find users by LastName. My custom Search Core result does not work with Å charaters (returns both Å and A). Problems seems to be that SharePoint 2010 normalizes Å to A which should be fixed. But is it possible to 'educate' sharepoint search to know more characters.

This is an issue of enabling Search Diacritics to use the characters instead of treating them as accents.

In MOSS 2007 this was enabled using STSADM as such;

However there's no Powershell mapping for this in 2010 as things have seemingly changed...

Indeed searching for the property on Technet yields this;

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/microsoft.office.server.search.administration.searchcontext.diacriticsensitive.aspx

"This class is obsolete now. Please use SearchServiceApplication and SearchServiceApplicationProxy instead."

I haven't touched this side of things on 2010, and can find no reference to diacritics with these two classes.

What I did turn up was this, which I suggest you look into;
