It sounds as if your umlaut difficulties are over. Will you mark this thread as 'solved'? (see above: Thread Tools).

The compose key seems like a good method for getting umlauts (for those who are interested in such things).

Does the umlaut not work on this forum or under Linux in general?

It would appear that Advanced Mode is required to produce some characters. I think the take home message is that if Quick Reply doesn't work, go Advanced.

Ah, they will show up in the text entry box if you enter them into quick reply, but not when the message is posted.

I think it's another manifestation of the % eating bug.

See this and this.

Sehr gut!

I expect someone would pass on to the powers that be about the issue brought up here.

I don't know how to report bugs here, but I'll hit "report" on the post and just make a note to the mods.

Tschss!
