Internationalized Searches with Directory Server

Sun Java System Directory Server does support some powerfull locale specific matching rules, allowing searches according to French, Spanish, Japanese, Esperanto or even Manx.
The list of supported locales is impressive and OIDs have been allocated for each of them. The list is fully documented in the Directory Internationalization Reference" manual.
However, during the re-organization of the documentation for Directory Server 5.2, it appears that the section on how to search using these matching rules was removed.
The documentation of the Directory Server 5.1 on the subject is still valid. It's in the iPlanet Directory Server 5.1 Administration Guide, Appendix B: Finding Directory Entries. The section is Searching an Internationalized Directory and the most important part is the mapping table between Search Types, Operators and OID suffixes..
And below this table, you will find all the examples that illustrate the various searches for internationalized data.
Comments:

Looks like this doc was moved to the Getting Started Guide, which was never republished with Java Enterprise System documentation. Not too much has changed, as far as I know.
