Accented characters and the Words Panel

I have just mentioned that words containing any accented characters (ë, é, è, ï etc.; German, French, Dutch, Scandinavian languages etc.) are not highlighted in the text using the Words Panel. This is rather strange as for example cyrillic characters are highlighted normally. Any explanation or similar experience? I am using the latest beta of DT Pro Office (2.0pb8).

I’m not sure to what kind of “Words panel” you’re referring but which view/window and what kind of document (RTF, PDF, Word etc.) did you use?
