I don't know nothing about Windows and Cygwin, but isn't a
Compose-key-like thing available like it is in X-Windows?  I use it all
the time.

Using the compose key you would just type Compose+" followed by an 'a'
to get an A DIARESIS.  I enable it using 
keycode 109 = Multi_key
in my .Xmodmap.

But again: I really can't tell whether this is applicable on the windows
platform.

Cheers,
Stefan
