I have only seen Ã± in old French; however, old French also uses tilde
above lots of other characters, such as all vowels (Ã£áº½Ä©ÃµÅ©á»¹) and a lot of
consonants, e.g. qÌ (for the old spelling of "que"). Instead of writing
an "n", you often put a tilde over the letter preceding the "n". So
e.g. "France" was "FrÃ£ce." I believe that this spelling was used until
about the time of the French revolution.
