The game in general does not accept diacritic marks. This can be especially difficult for people in some language groups. It was made by an American company with no thought for true internationalization.

Some parts of the game are built to accept Unicode characters, some aren't. The file system isn't, though most LTEXT files (Which is how signposts and the such are stored I believe) is.

I know that Diacritics are allowed in building names (They exist in the French translation of the game) as long as they aren't stored in an exemplar.
