Please show all the steps for reproducing this, not just the resulting
display.  From the rest of your text, I'm guessing that one needs to
turn on Org mode, create a table, and populate it with the above
contents.  But if I do this by hand, I don't see the problem, so maybe
I missed some step.

It is also important to describe how you typed é, assuming that you
typed it inside Emacs.  OTOH, if the table was created by importing a
file, please tell which bytes stand for é there.

Finally, please tell which versions of Emacs and Org you have
