Hello Stefan,

no, doesn't work. The code  in the database is stored in another format. 
I have no idea about the real coding of the entries. Typo3 somehow 
recodes the entries so they come out as utf in FE and BE, but they are 
recoded in the database. tt-content and index are the same strange 

So I think solr will be no option either.
