It would not appear to be possible. The GUI will kick it out. It also
appears to reject ASCII escape codes, such as the equivalent ä My
guess as to the reasoning is that the GUI is programmed to kick out the
special characters. It wasn't until fairly recently that ICANN allowed
the utilization of non-Latin characters / special characters in TLDs,
and remember that the underlying Sausalito code that we're relying on
predates that 2009 decision by a fair number of years!
However, since non-Latin characters / special characters in TLDs are
sure to proliferate as adoption increases, we will probably want to see
if that is a behavior that can be modified.
