My little experiment on Squeak3.9b-7044 using WAKom without any conversion:

- seaside input method works correctly and the model get the right value 
(at least, if I inspect it in squeak I get the right accented character)
- during the answering, the WAResponse contained the valid accented 
character printable within Squeak debugger
- the only problem is in html source code I can read in my web browser. 
There is a '?' instead of the letter.

What is the encoding used by Squeak3.9b-7044 ? It seems to be UTF-8 
because WAKom does not convert anything if I understand correctely.

Can somebody help me and make accented characters work on Seaside ?
