Ahh...  works great!  Thanks....

In case any one else is interested in this, I must not have fully
understood what Maarten Buis was suggesting, because I literally
substituted

_char(233)cart

for

ecart

when I wanted the first "e" to be "e accent aigu."  This was in one or
more titles within a -graph-

This did not work, but

-local eaigu=char(233)-

-graph ......... title ("... `eaigu'cart ...")

did the trick.
