According to
> 'Littérature' returns 54 results, none of which is the page entitled 'Littérature francophone virtuelle' BUT almost all of which contain the target string...

A few possibilities to look into:

1) the page entitled 'Littérature francophone virtuelle' contains a slightly
different spelling of 'Littérature' than your search string. Check the
HTML source for the page carefully, to make sure there isn't some difference
in accents or spelling.

2) the SGML entity for the 'é' in the title isn't being converted correctly.
There were problems with numeric entities in many 3.2 snapshots and the last

3) that page was indexed before you had the locale configured correctly,
and never reindexed, so the accented letter was lost. Try touching the
page's source file and reindexing it, or reindexing from scratch.
