Hi Markus,

I tried different types of encoding, LATIN1 to LATIN 9, still the same
behavior. I read a few forums, but there I couldn't find a concrete answer
for this.

So... still searching.

Best regards,

By definition, ASCII does not contain any umlauts.

So I would advise that, first, you switch to an umlaut capable encoding
(e. G. Latin1, Latin9 or UTF-8).
