has anyone else noticed this change. Up til now if you searched with an accent or without you got a different set of results on .com

For a while it has been that way on .fr and the other regionals that may use accents but this is the first time I see it on .com

will it stay this way?

i am seeing the same thing for keywords in spanish. this is a major advance. it would be really great to be able to optimize for accented keywords without having misspelled words all over the page.

I've been trying to optimise for 4 combinations without accent and 4 with. I was first page for the 4 without but no where on the others. Now I'm between 8-12 for everything.
Just have to work a bit harder to get back on the first page! :)

Just like to point to related thread about this [webmasterworld.com...]

I think it's a good choice to integrate it on general searches too.

I am getting similar results for spanish ó and o. try searching for a word with accent and without, the number of results is almost the same. as least searching from here, Mexico City

Currently on Google.com:

résumé [google.com]: 360,000
resume [google.com]: 368,000
résumé -resume [google.com]: 322,000
resume -résumé [google.com]: 458,000

Whatever that means...

<added>
322,000 + 458,000 = 780,000

well maybe it's just me but I couldn't care less about the number of results. If one way a page ranks 7 and the other way it ranks 24, that's all that matters to me.

All day yesterday it was merged. The day before yesterday not.

Now today they are unmerged again so they have changed it a couple of times. Interesting to see where it ends up!
