This is a complex topic.
In a T1 fontencoded documents, "standard" accents can be copy/pasted  
fine. For example,


will give you fine results (in normal LaTeX). For more unusual  
characters, different font encodings will help, and so will the cmap  
package. I'm not particularly familiar with that package, however.

Of course, using XeTeX will work perfectly in all cases provided that  
your font contains the character you want.
