Search support for accented characters

While many languages contain a number of accented characters (á, ü, č...), web users mostly don't bother when typing a search query and use their plain, non-accented counterparts (a, u, c...).

Currently, Webflow search does not take this in consideration, and thus searching for 'mexico' when the real content is 'méxico' ends up finding nothing.

Could the scope of the search functionality be extended to consider the 'plain version' of the string, to come up to the common standard of web searching?

Thank you so much...
