Can use replace the é in UTF-8 with a é as é ?
Well, of course not; my web pages were given as an example, they were created using the Microsoft Frontpage software, and I do not remember anything configurable along these lines.

However the same happens with every page using accented characters; have a look, using your EBW1150, at the French paper Libération at http://www.liberation.fr; I just do not see how they could be requested not to use UTF-8 encoding...

Also, the URL for Le Monde (http://www.lemonde.fr) just hangs the EBW1150.
