[reading: Derek Young, "Rock'n'Roll Dancing"]

Here's a question: is there a Unicode character for an N with an umlaut?

(Triggered by eating a splendid dessert of brownies and Häagen-Dazs ice cream, which made me think of that most famous of fake umlauts, the one in the name of "Spinal Tap").

Oh, and compounds like U+006E U+0208 (i.e. 0x6e 0xcc 0x88 in UTF-8) don't count.

Your Wikipedia-fu is poor.

It was more of a rhetorical question.

(Even if the answer is no, there isn't a single Unicode character for it).
