I am not sure either, but being French I would say that in roman, german and scandinavian languages at least the following characters are used:

All accented letters such as , , , , , , , , (german umlaut), , etc.
oe (called "e dans l'o) as in oeuf, oeuvre, etc.
(spanish "nina"
French cdille

Also, typographic rules in French (not sure whether they follow these rules in Italy or Spain) say that the english quotes (as in "quote") should be replaced by the opening and closing angle brackets or "guillemets", with a non-breaking space between the bracket and the word, in order to avoid widow/orphan words (both the brackets and the word should be on the next line if there is not room enough for them on a given line).

I am not sure that replacing english quotes by guillemets is at all possible using BD...
