[Spellyans] diacritics

German without diacritics looks wrong. <a> and <ä>, <o> and <ö>, as well as <u> and <ü> need to be distinguished. Not doing so is a mistake. If one cannot type the diacritics, the digraphical variants <ae>, <oe> and <ue> are permtted.

I regularly use an online Hungarian-English dictionary. One of the imput choices is "ignore accents". Since diacritics are common in Hungarian, this is sensible. Moreover Hungarians themselves sometimes get diacritics wrong, confusing long vowels with short ones.

When writing Hungarian, however, one always uses diacritics. Not to do so would be incorrect.

I think you have mistaken input method equivalence with orthography.
