Ah! Those Frenchies ;-)
Well, on Usenet we have a group (news:fr.usenet.8bits) that is dedicated to
solve this kind of problems. It was set up loooong ago, but it is still not
And no, the (remanent) discussion about the introduction of UTF-8 as an
allowed character set on the fr.* hierarchy is *not* the most frequent
We certainly had been allowed a revival around 1999, thanks to the ¤ sign;
but the winner is probably the "smart quotes" that a well known word
processor inserts as apostrophe, particularly when the text is cut&pasted.
