Trouble using å,ä,and ö in mask attack
it all has to with possbile storage and combinations

it all started with ascii (8 bit, 1 byte) combinations = 255

take a look

you see ascii and extended ascii uses these 255 combinations so 1 byte is "full" it cannot encode more than this, no other chars possible, so utf-8 and other encodings came up, UTF-8 today can have a length 1-4 bytes to encode all the other possibilities.

thats why äöü and other chars need 2 bytes for encoding, if you scroll down on the utf-8 chart table you will find some weird languages which uses 4 bytes, but this way utf-8 can encode every? language and chars on the world, at the end of the list there should be all emoticons and symbols
