Inconsistent normalization mapping of German umlauts #1144

Hey guys,

String.normalize/1 behaves inconsistently when normalizing German umlauts to ASCII:

ä -> a
ö -> o
ü -> ue

The same holds true for the uppercase equivalents of those characters. Hoping to speak on behalf of all German MooTools developers, I suggest the following mapping:

ä -> a
ö -> o
ü -> u

I would be very happy, if this little fix would make into mootools-more.

Best regards,
