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.

It would be intuitive if the GUI showed not the LaTeX sequence but the result,
insertions or searches could be also typed with regular characters and then the
GUI should turn them into LaTeX sequences... Notice that there are LaTeX
packages that do exactly that...
