    after having loaded \lm in some way?

You wouldn't want to actually define your active é to switch to lm(r),
since you might want an italic/whatever e-acute.

I was merely thinking of a test:

\font\lmr = texnansi-lmr10.tfm
\def\eacute{\char"E9 }
\lmr An e-acute from lmr: \eacute

And see if the resulting typeset e-acute is searchable as you desire.

Making all the myriad definitions to make the characters work in
real documents is another matter, but that's "just" macros. --best, karl.
