Ëmäcs and the Heavy Metal Umlaut

Jon’s article reveals the Möglichkeiten for inputting umlauts in Emacs. Maybe you’ve been avoiding some words because they are difficult to input. In particular, maybe you’ve been avoiding using the Metal umlaut.

For example:

  • Motörhead (RIP Lemmy)
  • Mötley Crüe
  • Queensrÿche (Version 1)
  • Blue Öyster Cult

It seems perfectly natural to apply to Emacs, christening it:


Give it some time to grow on you, because Magnar Sveen has already established that Ëmäcs Rocks!

Re-published because I broke my RSS feed syndicated for Planet Emacsen and @hober fixed it. Thank you @hober.
