Problem in inputting other language characters



We have a problem in displaying Canadian French character in SAP Script layout. First I installed the French (Canada) - FR as input language from Control Panel and applied the language bar tool settings. Then logged into the develpoment server with FR as login language. Entered the Canada French text in a Notepad first and copied it from the notepad to SAP Script layout. Once i enter the text and save it, it says "The input field contains prohibited characters (already deleted)". And one of the character in the word is getting deleted and getting replaced by a junk character. The following is the Canadian French word which i was trying to copy and paste in SAP script layout:


The SAP script layout is not recognizing the character 'œ' in the above word. It says this character is a prohibited character.

I dont have any issue in inputting all other Canadian French alphabets/characters other than the above one particular character.

Earlier I had worked on inputting different character sets like Japanese, Korean etc. and followed the same procedure to enter/input the other language text and had never faced this problem.
