    hold the option key
    press "u"
    press the letter you want the umlauts to go above

    so if you want a "ü", it's option-u-u

    Great tip visualpurple!

    BTW, the complete range is:

    Option+e, then type e = é

    Option+u, then type u = ü

    Option+i, then type i = î

    Option+n, then type n = ñ
