           Summary: Prefix Search: Would be nice if core could highlight
                    the result rather than js
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: JavaScript
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

Sometimes we see weird results in the prefix search because Cirrus uses
different matching rules then the jquery.suggestions library.  For example, in
English, Cirrus is flattens high ascii so searching for "resume" will return
"résumé".  Cirrus is quite capable of highlighting the result properly, but it
has no way to tell the front end what the result should look like.

I don't believe it would be practical to replicate Cirrus's logic on the front
end because it can change and it is different for different wikis.
