Summary0000798: Dotty does not support any accented characters in node names or labels.

If accents were not supported in the node names only, this would
not be a big problem. However, they do not work in labels too.
I do not have time to remove all the accented characters
of my files to pass them in dotty, them add them back.
Additional Information

[erg] The dotty and lneato viewers are very out of date with respect to the features supported by
the basic layout programs. The author has long since moved on to other work. We keep them in
the distribution because they still work okay for many graphs, and some people rely on them.

At present, we are working on a new graph viewer/editor platform which relies on the same code
we use in the layout programs, so it can't be lag behind. Meanwhile, as noted in the FAQ, we
suggest taking a look at some of the viewers built by users listed at
<CD> [^]
<CD> [^]

Alternatively, for some applications, it is sufficient to use the layout programs to create
a postscript, jpeg or svg file and then use one of the generic viewers for those formats.
TagsNo tags attached.
Modify the original .dot file, remove accented characters.
Pass it to dotty.
Add back accents in new files.
The removal of accented characters is doable by a script,
but adding them back is not because information is lost.
