Special Characters in search

Please clarify how the special characters are handled in dbsight search.
I have a product with label e.g. 'Air %$@# Heater' which is not returned on search for that string. As it seems the special characters are simply ignored unless they are wildcard searches.

The characters depend on which analyzer you choose.

Analyzer analyze sentences into searchable words. So if that analyzer can cut words with the special characters remaining, it'll be searchable.

There is a analyzer testing page. Please try it there.
