For French, not, but there is a "trait d'union" (hyphen) missing to be
grammatically correct. (;
To be even more nit-picking I added correct typographic conventions for
French (3 additional characters, i.e. the two angled quotes plus NBSP)...

>"Excusez-moi, parlez vous français?"

Corrected text (including correct typography of French quotes and required
spaces [3 more]) (; (: :

« Excusez-moi, parlez vous français ? »
(please note the use of the Latin 1 spacing macron to underline (: )

That said, Ed was remarkable in adding the cedilla. It was indeed missing.
