Thanks for the correction, it is indeed "Diaeresis", not umlaut.
Thanks for the link.
It underlines my error: "Often mistakenly called an umlaut" :D

I thought the diaresis was mostly from French.
French often use that "Diaeresis" nowadays, as opposed to English, where I only saw ï in naïve.

IMO using diaeresis in coöperate and in reïmagined is playing smartass, until all "foo" instances replaced with "foö" through all the Perl source code.

This approach also disrespects German (and Estonian) reading of such letters.
