It would work, but it seems to be a lot of trouble just to avoid using
UTF-8. Why reinvent the wheel?

Using UTF-8 to *display* text is out of question.

I was wondering how we could treat keywords in a way that everybody with a foreign keyboard could still search for keywords that contain special characters.
Example: I insert some content with the keyword "Ölfeld".
What can we do to enable an american user without a "Ö" on his/her keyboard to find this content? In this case, an obvious solution would be to append an additional keyword "Oelfeld" ("Ö" -> "Oe"). But what about other languages besides German, Swedish, Danish ( and French (see Milan's reply)?

Of course, we could use escape sequences (like LaTeX or HTML), but that wouldn't be intuitive.

Perhaps the best we could do would be to replace special characters with alternate character sequences ("Oe") or base characters (c cedille -> "c").
The Wikipedia has some guidelines to do this:
