It's a bug, sort of.

try    \caption{R\"uckmelder}
or     \caption{R\"{u}ckmelder}


The problem is a matter of  reverse-translation  to match 
the code that occurs in the  .aux  file, (or .lof or .lot file)
giving the figure/table-number for the caption.

Using the standard LaTeX (non-german) the comparison is done
by back-converting &#252; to \"{u} .

As it is increasingly common to use "u or a single 8-bit character,
then this part of the LaTeX2HTML coding needs to be revisited,
to allow greater flexibility.


Hope this helps,
