It would be fine to have my apache document folder as a sub-folder of my 
user folder which has (obviously) an 'ö' in its name.  It would sound 
strange, if such a well established application could not cope with 
ordinary directory names outside the US-ASCII encoding scheme.

In the case of URLs this is no problem: I can use the Unicode scalar value 
for 'ö' which is 'F6' and escape it with a preceding '%'.  But this did not 
work with the Apache config file.
