[OS X TeX] soul package and utf8

this is not strictly Mac specific, but the soul package has been  
discussed here before AFAIK. I'm unable to run soul with utf8  
encoding, it just doesn't seem able to handle it properly. This seems  
like a massive bug (or feature missing) but I haven't found anything  
on this on the web.

My little example:

\usepackage{color, soul}
Täst \hl{täst}

Notice how the first umlaut is typeset properly, while the \hl  
command of the soul package stumbles over it.

Is this normal?
