German special characters..

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I just got my first iPod this afternoon and am now in the process of uploading all my CDs into iTunes. However, some of my files require typing German special characters (umlauted vowels). I'm using a PC and the special character codes for PCs are not working in iTunes. I'm stumped!
Anyone know how to access special characters? They seem to exist, since certain albums I've uploaded which have German titles are picking up umlauts.
TIA....

Trevor,
If the client application attempts to store a character such as the euro that is not defined in the database character set a replacement is selected and the clients representation will be lost. If the client uses a different code page to the databases character set the symbol can still be stored as long as both code pages have a code. The client must also have the character set component of NLS_LANG set to the client's character set.
The solution is in finding a correct combination of the MS Windows code page that match the chosen Oracle client character set encoding for that character. The problems are with the client PC settings, and the resolution could be time consuming when looking for the available OS code pages and font information. You could find some information on code pages at the following Microsoft site:
