This is the UTF-16 representation of é (UTF-8 would be C3A9). It's
perfectly suited for XeTeX. TeXShop's Help advises to use a header
%%!TEX encoding = UTF-16 Unicode
or such to make it understand the encoding. If you want to use your
accents in LaTeX you could convert them with iconv:
iconv -f UTF-16 -t ISO-8859-15 file > converted output file
(The iconv programme writes the converted text stdout) Of course you
can use UTF-8 format in LaTeX.
A kind of divine inspiration, or sacred fire affecting
censorious critics of this dictionary.
