Hi Miklos,
If you aree using MS macros, then extended accent-marks can be
activated by invoking macro ".AM". Then you can define the
"hungarian umlaut" in the following way:

.acc*over-def ; \(a"

after which you can get the "double acute accent" by appending "\*;"
to the letter, as in


(and similar for u and U with the accent).

If you are not using ms macros, then you should be able to achieve
the same effect by including the revelant definitions from s.tmac:

.de acc*over-def
.ds \\$1 \Z'\v'(u;\w'x'*0+\En[rst]-\En[.cht])'\
.acc*over-def ; \(a"

after which you can proceed as above. Other macro packages may have
similar provision.

See s.tmac for the full repertoire of extended accent functionality.

Hoping this helps,
