Re: insert umlaut

if I use 

(insert (string-make-multibyte "Umlaut: ü"))

it now works with Emacs 23.2 (Windows). However, the question remains why 
"string-make-multibyte" is apparently not required when using Aquamacs 2.0 
(Emacs 23.2) and with Emacs 23.1 (Ubuntu). The Windows version assumes a 
different encoding for the insert text?

Warm regards,
