But to answer your question, the diaeresis is fairly common. See this blog entry and then read any article in the New Yorker afterward.
Still I read news sites of all levels on and off all day long (literally). I am in grad school so there is a ton of reading there at the scholarly level. I do not think I have ever see these marks like you mentioned. So I have a hard time believing they are common at all.
