This is a very outdated suggestion (and should either be removed or updated).

In most cases, it only helps to change the encoding to utf8, if you also
define new Unicode character bindings in the user-preamble.

Furthermore, with XeTeX and 8-bit TeX fonts, the encoding is ascii - no
other encoding works with this combination!

Normally, the é is converted by lib/unicodesymbols to \'{e} and all is fine.

ERT is a special case - it is up to the user to ensure proper working.

* change the comment from ERT to comment
* invert the test (we already have several cases of inverted:ERT)
