Say, the Latin-1 characters got mangled.  Can you repost (just this part) in
ASCII?  I'd describe characters as 'o-umlaut', 'ae ligature' or 'ash', etc.

Thanks; I'm toying with umlaut in at least one of my conlangs, and I need
some natlang ideas.

What are the rules -- and causes -- of umlaut in other Germanic languages?
