A german client of me has having a problem with the “u umlaut” character.
Normally it should be
ü but it isn’t working,
ü isn’t working either.
Is there something that I have to change in the doc type or somewhere else?

What charset are you using? That might be a problem. if you are using a sub set switch the page to utf-8 or ISO -8859-1. ISO -8859-1 suports the “u umlaut”
<meta content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" http-equiv="Content-Type" /> <meta content="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1" http-equiv="Content-Type" />
Seems not to work, I’ve also tried with:
xml:lang="de-DE" lang="de-DE" in the html tag, but this doesn’t work either
I’m a bit stuck here, it will be a stupid thing, but most of the times I get stuck on the stupid things
Are you using Cufon or another font replacement? A lot of times special characters are left out to keep the file smaller. If that’s the case you’ll need to recreate the Cufon file and include these glyphs.
Yep, seems that it only doesn’t work with the cufon, in normal text the ‘umlaut’ is showing up.
Not really sure what you mean with glyphs? (sorry I’m quite new to Cufon and do not know the advance details yet)

Glyphs are just the different characters in the font (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glyph)
Go to the Cufon generator website (http://cufon.shoqolate.com/generate/) and at the end of the options check the boxes that provide the extra characters you need. There is even a text field at the end of the check boxes you can type additional characters in if you want.
