I just noticed that when creating my bibliography  within Texshop, it gracefully handles utf-8 characters like ü and ö in the .bib file although Bibtex is 7 bits!  How does that magic work? (Bibtex is set as the engine in the preferences.a)  When running bibtex from the command line or from Texstudio I seem to get the ü:s and the like mangled.
