In Emacs 21.3, with LC_CTYPE=en_US.ISO_8859-1, I tested this:

,----[ ~/.emacs (complete, nothing else) ]
| (global-set-key [2276] 'test2276) ; ä
| (global-set-key [ö]    'testoe) ; ö
| (global-set-key [252]  'test252) ; ü


ä -> Symbol's function definition is void: test2276
ö -> ö (i.e. self-insert-command)
ü -> ü (i.e. self-insert-command)

Bye, Reiner.

Followup-To:; Andreas, I doesn't make much sense to
post in English to a German speaking newsgroup (additionally, in
d.c.e, you should tag Emacs questions with "[Emacs]").
