    The Unicode Standard has precomposed letters with diaeresis:

    Latin a, e, i, o, u, y, h, t, w, x
    Greek upsilon
    Cyrillic a, schwa, zhe, ze, i, o, barred o, e, u, che, yeru

    No n with diaeresis. Never did and never will.

    So this appears to be a case of false memory, perhaps brought
    on by listening to "Back from the Dead" (cranked up to 11)
    too many times. ;-)
