I think those was copied straight from the doc. The easy way
Out is to remove the French version of the country name.
Or possibly use names from other "Country name lists"
without non ASCII characters. ISO? E164?

I've checked in changes for most of the files in his message (most of 
which were gratuitious non-ASCII characters in comments that could be 
replaced with ASCII equivalents, e.g. just using " rather than fancy 
curly quotes); the only exception is packet-e212.c, which has country 
names in French with accented letters.

I suppose one way to handle that would be to have the E.212 dissector 
read the country code list from a text file in UTF-8 form (we already 
have one UTF-8 file read by Wireshark, namely the AUTHORS-SHORT file). 
Yes, that means there's a file in the source tree that's not all-ASCII 
and that thus

	1) isn't going to be displayed correctly on all systems

and

	2) can't necessarily be edited correctly on all systems

but at least it's not a source file - the only reason to edit it would 
be to add, remove, or change a country code, which is probably not going 
to be done as often, or by as many people, as would source code changes, 
and it doesn't have to pass through a C compiler that might not 
correctly interpret the characters.
