Hammarskjöld

Why the hell did I decide to name a major setting in the book "Hammarskjöld"? I don't even have a key to make the "ö". I ought to just do a find-and-replace and rename it "U Thant", but then I'd have to hunt down all those references to "The Hammer" and "Hammer Town" and change them, and "U Thant" doesn't lend itself to snappy nicknames.

Because umlauts are awesome? Though, are you aware that Option-U will set umlauts in the Mac world?

I actually didn't know that. Wouldn't do me any good at any rate, because I can never remember how to spell the word. I usually just copy-past it from another chapter.
