Parsing text with foreign characters

I'm using a range of text parsing functions (Position etc) to get specific bits of data out of a text string.

 

From what I can see, the built in text functions don't seem to be able to handle 'foreign' characters - in this case the text is in French...

 

E.g:

 

texttoparse=

     Bonjour,

     Nous vous remercions de prendre en considération la réservation suivante :

 

I'm trying to get the Position of the "Réf" section, but when I use Position ( texttoparse ; "Réf" ; 1 ; 1 ) I get a "0".

If I change the "é" to an "e" it works OK, but I'm loathed to use a Substitute function for every single character I need to translate.

 

Is this expected behaviour? Is there a setting I can use somewhere to make the text functions appreciate all characters?
