When I was 13 and learning German, our class went to an awful lot of trouble to learn the exact way to write it correctly - you'd be surprised how finicky people can be, or how difficult the exercise can be made. You can imagine how pissed off I was years later when I found out that this "correct" way was considered no more correct than any other way, and that in Germany, they plonk two dots over their letters the exact same way anyone would.
