Sorry to interrupt this discussion, I originally missed it because it
ended up in my spam folder for some strange reason.

I am using a Mac. On Mac, Unicode normalization gives me e' for
&eacute; while most other systems will give me é.

So if I start authoring on my Mac for instance a document and have
to use a corporate stylesheet made on a PC, both instances using
class "barré", do I take the risk of having my styles not applied ?
If the answer is yes, it's unacceptable, even the input method or
the OS is guilty. The user cannot have to worry about that and must
be provided with a workable solution. A solution that chokes on acute
e in french is not workable, even in the name of purity of the solution.
