Finally the german Umlauts display fine in the Event title. But In the Event
Note, they appear as a question mark. Despite of that, when you change them
manually back to the corresponding Umlaut they appear correctly and stay
appearing correctly.

I remarked this on the GermanHolidays.ics calendar file from the Calendar
Project Site.

Trunk Build September 1st 2002.

So you mean that the german holiday file is incorrect, of is this also a 
problem if you enter new text?

I don't know if the German Holiday File is incorrect. I mean when I open an the
event in Calendar and change in the Notes the '?' back to Umlauts they stay
correctly like this. 

Also when I enter new Events containing Umlauts, they are corrrectly displayed.

Hmmh, I believ to think that the ics file is broken.

The following succeded:

1. Create Event containing Umlauts in Title and Note
2. Export Event
3. Delete Event
4. Re-Import Event

Result Umlauts are displayed correctly. Is it possible that the .ics file is
generated with an older version ? If so I can export the File again so you can
upload it, with the correct Umlauts in the Notes
Component: Calendar Front End → Calendar General

It looks like GermanHolidays.ics on the mozilla site is saved with an older 
version, export now should save as UTF-8. If you can export to a new file and 
post that, should fix the problems.
