I used &uuml; &auml; and so on succesfully between
<TITLE> tags. Right. But it worked while I hadn't
defined 'charset' in <META> tag. From one moment
I had to do it it and bahhh .. Swish-E lost its ability to
index anything in <TITLE>. So the proper-decoding
is related with using <META charset>. (?)

I solved the problem this way (in PHP):

if ($HTTP_USER_AGENT != "SwishSpider")

  echo '<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
charset=iso-8859-1">'."\n";
 }
