But we're not discussing Plain TeX, Heiko : this is the
XeTeX list, where the world has moved on, where UTF-8 is
the norm, and where ASCII is no more than a bad dream.
Are you really suggesting that in Plain XeTeX,

     ä, ö, ü, ß

is anything other than a normal, everyday, document ?

I have just processed it here, and with
the addition of just two lines to change the default
font to a Unicode-compatible one, it generates exactly
what one would hope for and expect in the 21st century.
