    I would have fixed it earlier, but I do not speak French. :)

    Hmmm...you could find someplace where umlaut u is used correctly and copy and paste from that? Just an idea...

    Change made. It seems to work. Check it out, however.

    I have never been able to get those codes to work, not even on vBulletin. I gave up and either did a copy and paste or used the letter "e."

    Looks good! Thanks. I was able to do a umlaut u as Tom said. Numlock on. Hold the Alt key down, then type 0252, release the Alt key. Works here and also worked on vB that I seem to recall.

    My laptop does not have numlock key, but maybe one of the function keys will do it.

    On my laptop if I hold down the Fn key and the Alt key and use the numbers on the u, i, o, etc. keys it works.

    I have no problem with any the usual German, Portuguese, French, etc. diacritical letters. For example Uhrenfabrik Mühlheim Müller & Co, Kern & Söhne, Schloß, São Paulo, abraço , Breveté, Curaçao, mañana, têm, etc. I've used Apple since '84 and have found their built-in language capabilities to be excellent.

    We Windows Luddites have the ability to enable the International Keyboard feature but I have not had the 33 years John has had to learn how to use the capability. I suspect it is nearly identical to the Apple approach which I have also not used by any significant amount. :)
