The ispell way is quite generic, one can also define a mapping for html
escape sequences (&egrave; &eacute; etc.)
But probably that can be handled in a filter too.

There can be two cases where the requested functionality can be still
useful:
- when one uses an US keyboard... (I have an HHK[1])
- when one wants to spellcheck an already written text.

We can solve the problem substituting the sequences with the right
letter, either in the editor or using a wrapper script around aspell,
but neither of these is an elegant solution.

Thanks for the interest.

Antonio
