Wikipedia says, "Swedish uses characters identical to a-diaeresis (ä) 
and o-diaeresis (ö)".  This is a little ambiguous.  Identical how?  I 
think they mean "visually identical to".  The distinction is whether 
Swedish treats 'ä' as a variant of 'a' or as a completely separate 
letter.  The latter is the case.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umlaut_(diacritic) states:

   Swedish [...] treat[s] them as independent letters.
