I frequently move my catalogue between my stationary PC and my MacBook Air. I do all my heavy stuff on the PC and uses the MAC when i commute to add keywords and other organizational stuff.

The problem I have is that keywords with the characters å,ä and ö on the PC isn't the same as the same keyword entered on the MAC. They end up side by side in the keyword list...

It seems that the PC and the MAC uses different character sets and that the matching (sorting) isn't compatible. This is highly annoying...!

Look at the screenshot where you can clearly see the problem for the keyword Ånglok

I'm pretty sure the Mac uses MacRoman for keywords, and neither use real UTF-8 representations. This is probably a bug.
