And, for me at least, also has manifestations in English when dealing
with unibyte characters with the high bit set.  For example when I
read your above line using emacspeak-speak-line the umlaut  is spoken with characters like "A tilde 1
fourth" which isn't the character of course.  Putting the cursor over
the umlaut  and executing the commands
m-x emacspeak-speak-set-display-table
to iso-ascii
and then m-x emacspeak-speak-display-char
gets the answer I want.  I presume what we want to happen here is for
these characters to be considered "normal" which might be as simple as
making language-specific syntax tables.  This discussion probably
belongs on the emacspeak  list and there's every chance TVR has a
solution we just haven't noticed yet.  If not I'm already some way
down a (possibly wrong) track to fixing this and the incentive to get
French working is high so I'll keep looking if necessary.
