# Swedish letters ÅÄÖ do not show using listings package

Problem

I am using the listings package to produce HTML-code and everything works except that the letters åäö do not format in accordance to the defined colors.

Minimal Working Example

\documentclass[11pt,twoside,a4paper,export]{article}

\usepackage[swedish]{babel}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{tikz}

\lstdefinelanguage{HTML5}{
language=html,
sensitive=true,
tagstyle=\color{blue},
markfirstintag=true
}

\lstset{%
% General design

xleftmargin={14pt},
numbers=left,
stepnumber=1,
firstnumber=1,
numberfirstline=true,
numberstyle=\color{black},
% Code design

stringstyle=\color{purple},

\begin{document}

\begin{lstlisting}[language=HTML5,numbers=left,firstnumber=1]
<!DOCTYPE html>

<title>Omvandla strängar</title>

\end{lstlisting}

\end{document}


Output

Notice how the letter ä does not format in orange color like the rest of the letters in the <title> element.

• The unicode-aware engine solution given to the related question you asked before works here as well, see the result – alwaysask Aug 9 '16 at 19:26
• @alwaysask I know, the only reason I ask is because the solution was a "hack" and not a really sufficient solution when you have a large number of code examples. It works nice for a small number but become unmaintainable when expanded. A long-term solution is what is needed, requiring minimal adjustments. – kexxcream Aug 9 '16 at 19:31
• Since you are looking for a stable long-term solution I'd suggest to take a look at the minted package (I haven't checked whether the same problem occurs, but I am quite sure it won't – minted` is worth a try anyway, if you need high quality syntax highlighting ) – JBantje Aug 9 '16 at 21:29
