Works now :)

Opened in notepad++ and set encoding to UTF-8 without BOM. First bits are EF BB (if that matters or not).
Acronyms using åäö now work:
KTH                      Kungliga Tekniska Högskolan
LTU                      Luleå Tekniska Universitet

Latest rel of Dokuwiki and no change to entities.local.conf.

I have also been trying to solve this issue without success. We have reverted to replacing åäö with aao, which of course looks a bit strange at times...

Sorry to hear that Thomas, I too have been considering "aa/ae/oe" and so on, 
but it doesn't look good. DokuWiki handles extended characters in normal text with ease 
so hopefully we can find a way to make acronyms work too.


# Acronyms.
