They are interchangable and pronounced the same. I think special characters like 'ō' are used when available but in their absence 'ou' works. 

Maybe.

I assume the translation above just gives the meaning, does anyone know the exact wording or how that saying became what it is ( in case its just meaning). Its not vitaly important but if someone isbored....

どういたしまして   =

どう () means “how”  +  いたしまして ()comes from 致す which means “to do”; usually written using kana alone. 

So, the whole expression could mean (it is "how it happened") , but used, in reply to (ありがとう) to mean(not at all), (don’t mention it) or (you are welcome).
