I believe the Lout handling of that is to suppose that either you type
address@hidden odiaresis} or that your editor/keyboard etc let you type such
an IsoLatin1 character.

I also think that this is a deficiency in Lout lexical analysis. 

For french documents, i have no problem typing special french
characters (eg eacute, etc) because me french keyboard (AZERTYUIOP)
and my editor (Gnu emacs 19.28) support them.
