That’s supposed to be an umlaut in the title

This sounds like a very serious criticism of WordPress:

Yes, I know that’s supposed to be an umlaut in the title. I just can’t persuade WordPress to do it.

As far as I know, WordPress has handled UTF8 for a long time. Does anyone know what is going on?
