Here is the bug report. It was reported as fixed as of LV 9.0.3 RC1.

Thank you for your reply.
Obviously, it was possible in earlier versions of LC.

So, could someone be kind enough to make a quick test with the most recent versions of LC, by typing text inside a field, if special characters can be used, like alt+144 for É, and possibly on azerty and qwerty keyboards ?
Thank you in advance.

I thought I recalled a bug in the LC engine where using the keyboard
method of typing the character code, press ALT, and then press X. For
example, to type a dollar symbol ($), type 0024, press ALT, and then
press X, didn't work in Livecode. However, I just tried searching the
Livecode Quality Center for a bug number and couldn't find it so
perhaps I am mis-remembering.
