You can type accented characters if you install a terminal keyboard (no 
prediction) that has accents. I use a keyboard with dead keys so
I can type lots of accented characters without needing hundreds of keys.

This did not work in SMS before, because of some UI problem. It did work 
on the linux command line though. I haven't tested the 16.april SHR yet, 
perhaps the accents works in sms there.
