AFAIcan remember, I've only seen it in handwriting; mostly that of older people, though my girlfriend when I lived in Germany wrote them too, and she's not old at all, she'd maybe be 22 or 23 now, and that was 6 years ago...and no it wasn't just umlaut written together, rather over non-umlauted u's...i can't remember for certain but maybe it was only in diphthongs?? -------ferko Ferenc Gy.
