Unicode support for the C# bindings has been tested and is known to
work with Mono, but whether it works with Microsoft's implementation is
an open question:


It sounds like it doesn't work out of the box currently.

But it's probably just a matter of working out how the conversions on
string parameters and string return values need to be and it will all
suddenly work.

It's unclear from this if the problem is passing strings to Xapian, or
returning strings from Xapian (or both).

Can you look at the database with the "delve" utility to see what terms
actually get added?
