Cue one more thing in my growing list of annoyances.
Accent marks are not arbitrary, they are part of the word and there are reasons for them. As we move into the digital world a lot of little nuances in language get lost and that makes me a sad Jane. I run into forums or blogs or any kind of text input that don't support "special characters" all the time.
Not that long ago I was helping a friend plan a wedding and the main message board he was on would give ?s for characters as well. Every time I had to type "fiancee" or "fiance" I think the ghost of my grandmother twitched a little.
On a side note I tried to edit my comment and tried every trick to make the right character appear buy no dice, so I'm letting the ?s stand as it is.
