Ok, I was right assuming it would be the same under LaTeX and under
ConTeXt/Plain TeX, because inputenc seems to change the way accented
characters are handled.

But try this foo.tex :

% Langue et codage
\enableregime[il1]  % idem inputenc=latin1

Essayons des accents : éàèôîûëïüç


and do 'texexec --pdf foo'

The fact is that characters that are written to file by TeX are using
the ^^ notation, because they are not affected by the locale anymore.
