thank you very much..., the unshifted tilde is what I wanted...then I 
get with \usepackage{ngerman} the beginning-marks with the combi "+` 
and the end-marks with the combi "+'

yes, but T1 or not is relevant: when I type (in a latex-source) \char1 
with minimal header (that is: 
\documentclass{article}\begin{document}\char1\end{document}), then it 
is default OT1 (where \char1 equals large greek delta). When I type the 
same with additional \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}, then the command \char1 
becomes an accent...
