(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

It's "Report a bug to Apple Friday", and here's my bug.

System Events' "keystroke" command doesn't work with umlauts. In short the following AppleScript:

tell application "System Events" to keystroke "Ümph"

doesn't work as it should. The "keystroke" command is supposed to take Unicode text, but depending on what you put in you'll get varying results. In this case you'll get something that looks like ">mph" typed out for you. Filed as bug 4224989.
