  I now have solved the problem for editing a page for which the "umlaut
fix" was made.
1. Write the page with all vowels with umlauts written in the form
"Xuml;" where X is the vowel needing an umlaut. Publish the page.
 2. View and copy the page needing  editing on a source code viewer site
that does not number the lines of code. I used  
  3. Paste the copied code into a new web page, give it a new name, edit
as desired, and publish the new corrected page.
  4. Delete the original page.
  5. Change the name of the new page to that of the deleted original
  The above procedure avoids replacement of the "Xuml;" terms with
umlauted vowels that occurs when one edits the original page, which
takes one back to where one started before correction.  Changing a page
title causes no problem, but editing does.
  To add more complexity, some American source code viewer sites will
show the "Xuml;" terms, as does the W3C validator. Others show the
vowels with umlauts instead.
