the dots in our font

Why You east speakers pronounce the two dots above a letter as a (we pronounce it in west as o) & a dot above and a dot under a letter as a ...?
Why dont You make a difference in the pronouncing of these vokals ?

John, we do distinguish between the two sounds. The one with two dots over the letter is pronounced like the "a" in "father" (info here, sound clip here, if you can play .ogg files) while the one with one dot above and one below is pronounced like the "a" in "fat" (info here, sound clip here).

Wikipedia uses the German examples Tag ("day") for the first sound and Rat ("advice") for the second.
