There are two issues here. The first is on the appropriate choice of
accents and variant letters for examples like these. This is what
Carsten seems to comment on.
The second one is that there's no point in repeating ASCII-only
equivalents immediately after the real stuff if the real stuff is
(extended) Latin (and is correctly shown, which is easy to make sure in
for HTML). That was my point.
