are special characters, especially German umlauts, acceptable in the distinguished name?
I've accidentally discovered that CPAN's Net::LDAP::Entry module doesn't support them (in the distinguished name). Other attributes are escaped correctly.

Michael is right here. Most LDAP servers store information in UTF-8 format. So, as long as your client sends the query in UTF-8 format, you will get the answer from the server. Not a problem at all.
