Maybe it has something to do with a missing encoding attribute in your XEP 
config file?

  <language name="French" codes="fr fra fre">
     <hyphenation pattern="frhyph_rx.tex" encoding="UTF-8"/>
     <!--                                 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ -->

What I experienced with the file is, you have to be very careful to edit 
the hyphenation pattern file. If your editor suspects it in UTF-8, but it 
is really ISO-8859, the file contains the wrong encoding after you have 
saved it.

See also the following URL, there might be other options. For example, you 
can/could(?) use the LaTeX notation for accented characters:


Hope that gives you an idea,
