    You do remember the other way to write ü ä ö, when you don't have the letters, though?

    That's why I ask. Most people don't.

    So here's how you do the other way:

    ü -ue
    ä -ae
    ö -oe

    You can write grün or gruen.
    The latter is only acceptable if you can't make a 'ü' thogh. So, for everybody without a German keyboard...
