http://users.skynet.be/antoine.mechelynck/other/keybbe.htm for a Belgian
keyboard on Linux; but regardless of your national keyboard layout you
can use the "accents" keymap distributed with Vim (as
$VIMRUNTIME/keymap/accents.vim where :a gives ä, :o gives ö, etc.), or
you can use digraphs (where Ctrl-K a : (without spaces) gives ä, Ctrl-K
o : gives ö, etc. (see ":help digraphs-use" and ":help
digraphs-default"). Or you can even construct your own keymap to get ä
by typing "a, ö by typing "o, etc., see
