I am pretty sure others have managed to. tk and hence idle handle the
entire BMP subset of unicode just fine once they get them. Except for
the apple version, which has just been fixed so French entry should
work. Showing characters on the screen requires an appropriate font.
http://bugs.python.org/issue4281 was the result of a font problem.

nothing obvious to fix.
If you have a problem, give the specifics here and lets see if someone
has a solution.
