Ok, giving up,

I created a new Database did a iconv from latin to utf8, set all to utf8 
lost practically all my content and put in new content in Amharic.

The content is still not utf-8 according to webbrowsing with phpmyadmin 
and when I put content directly in the database it is shown nicely but 
neverless not found with the fe search.

So I have to give up with the Introductionpackage and have another try 
with Dummy. Is there nobody out there with similar problems in Kyrillic, 
Thai or chinese?
