yes, unicode everywhere - there are no umlauts in the yml file (nor  
the corresponding code in the controller), but the files are saved  
utf8 (textmate and vim say so) and the controller uses 'use utf8;'

yes, the umlauts are in the tt files and as soon as [% form %]  
appears they are broken.
in the View::TT I use

I tried to comment out as much as possible in the formfu files: as  
soon as
in start_form is processed, the umlauts are bad.

with the controller code everything's working except that I can't get
what is needed to populate the form after a submit?
