German umlouts

The script I am just writing must work on servers with
MySQL 3.2.x and also on other servers with 4.x and 5.x

My problem is that I have german Umlouts stored in
varchar and text fields, later maybe also blob.

German Umlouts are for example äöü ß ÄÖÜ

I found a manual for this stuff:

But it seems that this stuff from the manual
does not work in MySQL 3.2.x and also not on 4.x.

I search for a solution which works from MySQL Version 3.2.x to 4.x until 5.x

Maybe I do not need to do anything, I am not sure,
but I guess that I should do something with the Umlouts because
I will store the website on a US American webserver which has _NO_ german configuration.

What may I do please?

Thank you!
Yours Annabella

PS.: Maybe the correct word for Umlout is "special character"
Whatever, I mean äöü ß ÄÖÜ
