Subject: "Umlaut" in Button and ALT


a customer told me, that he cannot see the right Umlaut in ALT behind
images or on Buttons (on a Mac with IE 3.01b or so). I.e. <img src=3D"foo"
ALT=3D"&Ouml;lberg"> shows up as scrambled Text. I tested it on LinuX with
Lynx and Netscape 3.0 -> everythings OK. The same on Win 0.95.

It's a big problem, because in Germany you have to use them, as "zurueck"
for example. Do you know a workaround (another than to write ae for =E4), or
does the Mac Users have to wait for a new version??=20
