Bernard, I just downloaded Revolution on my Windows 2000, made a 
standalone and tested the accented letters. Here on my (Norwegian) 
keyboard  everything works fine. In development mode there's a 
problem with accent aigu (é), since AltGr + accent key opens the 
Properties window.

Kevin, what can be done with this? Both French and Spanish make 
extensive use of this accent!
