You see question marks because the font you're using doesn't have the 
glyphs to display the accented characters.
I don't know if there's an easy way to load a font with the missing 
characters into a 4.6 image, because FreeType's FontChooser is broken, 
probably due to the recent Morphic changes. You can use the following 
script to load FreeType, if you want to give it a try:

Installer ss3
     project: 'FreeTypePlus';
     install: 'FreeTypeConstants';
     install: 'FreeType';
     install: 'FreeTypeSubPixelAntiAliasing';
     install: 'FreeTypeTests'
