Hm, converting the template everytime after it is changed seems too 
error-prone to me, if it is not done automatically.
There is one remaining possibility: Using unicode entities for these 
characters in the template (similiar to substituting characters with 
html entities - like ä for the german ä).

Here is a short summary of german umlauts (Hope they are displayed 
correctly in your news-reader; otherwise please use the link below):
Ä = Ä
ä = ä
Ö = Ö
ö = ö
Ü = Ãœ
ü = ü
ß = ß

More can be found here: http://czyborra.com/utf/. Copy the respective 
characters in the column "UTF-8" in your template.
