the problem is that you are using keyboard characters/letters that are not equivalent to ones that are on the font that the game is using.  what i did to go around that trick, is that I downloaded SCI Studio at www.bripro.com, and made my own font, and for the extended characters, such as an e with an accent mark on top, or a u with two dots above it, you would replace some character like the "^" or something that you wouldn't use in your game with the one you want, *you would draw it* and then when you need to use the character in the game, you just use the button that you replaced, but in the game, it will come out right.
