This would be the ideal solution, but it means another data point in the encyclopedia. Basically, you would have your lifespan, but another date range aside to describe the 'approximated active period' which would be referenced by this search feature.

I think it would be great to support umlauts. That's why I'm surprised they are not supported. I'm wondering if maybe support was broken somewhere along the line, because it is the sort of thing I would have wanted to support originally. And indeed, I thought it was.
