Generally wiki applications for Non-English speaking audiences will include form field names with non-ascii characters, such as "Título" ("Title" in Portuguese). These form fields are stored with a ascii-only field name ("Ttulo" in our example), and a title that corresponds to the original field name ("Título" in the example).

Both the %FORMFIELD% macro and %SEARCH%'s $formfield(...) formatting token support that: if you look for "Título", they will actually lookup the field name "Ttulo".

But %DBQUERY%'s $formfield(...) doesn't do that, and it would be nice if it behaved consistent with the existing similar funcionality.

The proposed solution is the following one:

diff --git a/DBCachePlugin/lib/Foswiki/Plugins/DBCachePlugin/ b/DBCachePlugin/lib/Foswiki/Plugins/DBCachePlugin/
index 1a3533b..d3bb164 100644

Makes sense. However instead of calling fieldTitle2FieldName - which is a non-official api - I'd prefer to copy&paste the three regexes in there over to the code.
