I have used the word “café” on a web page. It reads just fine in Safari and on iPhones, Droids and my Ubuntu netbook, but the é is followed by a strange geometric character on Windows computers and in Firefox.
I tried going into the HTML and replacing the code that Freeway uses with é but that didn’t seem to help either.
The character in question appears on this page, sixth paragraph down:
What Encoding have you set your page to? (Export tab in the Page Inspector, third from the left.) By default, it should be Automatic, which should create a UTF-8 character set tag. Sometimes you have to explicitly set this to Unicode to get it to happen correctly. Another trick is to explicitly set it to Mac Roman or Windows Latin. It doesn’t matter which, just that you set it to something.

How are you adding your accented é - using the ascii code or by typing opt+e, e ?
