It would be cool if I just type an german letter like Ã¼ Ã Ã¤ Ã Ã¶ Ã Ã (may not display correctly) and quanta would not type those in the editor window but their allowed replacements ü Ü ä Ä ö Ö ß because this is something that you forget to do very often.

I miss this feature, too. But it should be optional.
Using XHTML encoded with UTF-8 will produce valid documents without the need to
use entities (ü and so on). (This is the reason UTF-8 exists.)
The following is a valid XHTML heading encoded in UTF-8.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/xhtml; charset=UTF-8"/>
Subject: Re: automatic german letters replacement
With the KFileReplace (global replace) plugin you can set up rules to replace
german letters with &; strings. Alternatively you can use utf-8 encoding for
your files and get rid of &; strings. I don't close the bug yet, but will do
soon when the KFileReplace plugin will be easier to use.

Solve the oldest wish in Quanta (and the wish with the most votes): add possibility of as-you-type replacing of accented chars. By default it's turned off.

How about a special menu command for replacing accented characters to their HTML equivalents and vice versa? For example when pasting text from other sources, this would be useful.
