Somehow I haven't seen the message that sparked this comment 
in my pile of RUG messages.  There are a set of ALT key 
combinations that you can use for umlauted letters and for many 
other non-English characters as well.  Because I often type 
German names in my genealogy research, I memorized the most 
useful (for me) combinations.  For example: while pressing the ALT 
key, key 0228 on the numeric keypad (with NUM LOCK on) to get 
ä (umlauted lowercase "a").  You can also copy the needed 
characters from the character map to the Windows clipboard and 
paste them into your text as needed..
