[OS X TeX] German "Umlaute" in Index

I think for index entries it is necessary to write the explicit TeX 
macros, i.e. {\"u} for ü, etc.
At least that is what I use and it works ... since this is needed only 
for the index entries it is not too inconvenient, but you have to 
remember using the right macros in the right places :-)
