    Sounds very odd. I've sometimes heard that an acute is used with E even
    when diacritic marks are not otherwise used with capital letters in
    French. Now it seems that this is a particularly difficult character
    on French keyboards.

    Does this mean that the French use e.g. Alt-0201 when
    they wish to type E with acute accent ()?
