How acceptable to Scandanavian people is it to (for example) substitute "oe" for "ø"?

Does the use of "oe" for "ø" come across as lazy, or sloppy, or lacking of grace/goodwill etc to a Scandanavian when they see such a character substitution in their name?

I use MS Windows and usually employ the cut and paste method, except for MS Word that allows you to insert special characters directly into the text.

I have no data to back it up, but I think most people are pretty relaxed about it. Side story: The city I live in is Aarhus. They changed the name a few years back from Århus to Aarhus to become more international. Not much later they decided to name a new part of the city at the harbour "Aarhus Ø"  ::) ;D

I don't know what it is about industrial images, but I really enjoy most of them.  8)

Nice image Asle. 

I have only just finished watching the TV series entitled "The Heavy Water War", that features the attacks on this plant.  Apparently it was still producing heavy water (D2O) into the 1980s.

Fascinating IR vision of the topography. The rows of houses were never more interesting!

Thank you Keith. For full disclosure, the image is visible light with a preset I use for IR converted cameras. Sometimes it works...
