           Summary: Search indexing affected by less-than sign
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: 1.21.1

Then change the word "two" to be the corresponding digit "2", resulting in

  One < 2 butundeniably seven > six.

Now the search successfully finds the page.

I've discussed this on the support desk. One other user reported a similar
