This umlaute problem comes from inconsistency between console-data and
kbd-chooser translations encodings. Currently, in both copies in SVN,
the de.po file uses UTF-8 and is really UTF-8. So, the problem should
go away with further releases....
This should be documented in kbd-chooser templates, imho....
About the dead keys problem, I suggest that the default german
keyboard does not mention "keine Tottasten" at all....after all if usually
the default doesn't have dead keys, with mention this?). I even did
not find a "Deutsch mit Tottasten" flavour, anyway....
The french keyboard always uses dead keys by default and we indeed
never mention this....
