Hi Kevin

In German, an umlaut can be replaced by an e. A word like Müller, for
instance, can also be written as Mueller. Similarly, Cliff-hänger becomes
Cliff-haenger. I don't think Germans will have problems understanding this.

Of course, this does not solve your problem for French or Spanish, let alone
Danish or Finnish :o) Perhaps Peter Ring can tell you something about how
they handle accents in Denmark.
