|Western European caracters

Does anybody know what to do for edock to accept western european caracters (with accents for example). When I try to add some documents with an apostrophe, which is very commun, I get an error message something like "illegal caracter", and acute grave and circumflex accents are replaced with unreadeable caracters.
Please Help !!!!

I would imagine the reason why an apostrophe (') isn't accepted is because it is used in SQL queries to designate data. For example, when you do a query, it's like this:
select something from somewhere where value='some_value'
This is probably why it's not accepted.
I did a quick check with some characters I know of, and I found:
ß ä ë ö ü á é í ó ú â î ô
Do not work:
ï æ à è ì ò ù ê û ã ñ õ
Those are the only extended ascii characters I know of (I really only speak English, a little Scots Gaelic and some Latin). I reported it as a bug because I think these characters should work: especially when some characters from the same "family" are supported (like
ü) and some are not (like ï).
