And, if you are going to type many words in French, you may wish to
change your input method (M-x set-input-method RET) to,
e.g. french-prefix, so that you can simply type Saut'e and it will
appear as Sauté.  The ' key will be "sticky" and will be applied to the
following letter if appropriate.

The emacs input methods are fantastic.  I frequently use the TeX input
method to be able type, easily, things like ∫x≠y₁ or 6.02×10⁹, as

"C-h I" will describe the current input method.
