    According to Michael Everson's site, "The Alphabets of Europe" page,
    the French .pdf, character ñ and Ñ (Latin small / capital letter N
    with tilde) is used by the French alphabet.

    I looked at different other sources and found no other mention about
    this character as being used for French language (however, my search
    was not exhaustive).
    The standard ISO/IEC 8859-16 claims coverage of the French language,
    but character ñ and Ñ is not part of ISO/IEC 8859-16.

    Should I understand that this charactere was only used in "old" French ?

    Thank you,
