How to write a character accentuated with my keyboard? Squeak displays 
the debbuger when I strike on the "é" on the keyboard. I can't use 
accented characters into squeak with keyboard.
How to write a utf8 file? I am Linux utf8.
So How to use utf8 and not latin-1 into squeak?

Thank you for your help
