In 7t the accented chars are build by putting an accent over a char.
So you won't be able to copy and paste the characters in the pdf,
instead you will get something like this "`a ´a". 

I would prefer the 8t-variant. Quite a lot accented chars can be
writen directly, and for others you can try the acmacros.sty from
the ec-plain package:

\input acmacros.sty

\font\test= pplr8t

\test áà éè \`a \'a
