Default German Umlaut @ Prometric

Hi all,

Brief question:
My name has a German umlaut, which I transcribed for my ECFMG record (Ü > UE), and this is obviously the name on my scheduling permit, too.
While my name in the 'name' field on my passport is spelled with an Ü, the name is also printed on my passport with an UE in the machine-readable part at the bottom.

Will I be fine to go? Anyone with first hand experience?
