This is wrong. You cant have Umlauts with ASCII.
If you input them, you violate the ASCII codeset,
wich is 7 Bit only.
You'll have to recode your data to ISO8859-1
(Latin-1) or any superset (UNICODE)
Then pgadminIII works as well as any other
application. For migration or your apps
they should just set their client_encoding
to iso8859-1 then (if you choose UNICODE)
