    Can anyone explain why an accented character is sometimes represented as a base character plus its accent? For example, the utf-8 representation for is 65 CC 81, which is the utf-8 representation for e and the accent, instead of C3 A9? I find that this is how MacOS X represents accented characters.

    How can a C application that receives such utf-8 encoded characters handle them correctly? Appreciate your comments.
