Yes, have had problems. Apparently, the photo.net software character set recognizes umlauts all through the process up until the moment the writer "confirms" it. My paragraph breaks got lost in the shuffle, too. Sorry about the "word diarrhea."
Nope, not advertisement or PR. Just my own personal review of a long-out-of-print book that, yes, I happen to love. As for terms such as "paradigm," "ephemeral" and "fifty years hence," they are perfectly good and functional words going to waste in unread dictionaries whilst our current generation of youth inserts the dreadful "like" where commas *ought* to be.
I'm not even forty yet, and am already a cranky old man! :-p
Will publish a cleaned-up version with "ae," "oe," and "ue" in place of the umlauted vowels.
