[texhax] Problem with French composition

I'm new to Tex. I've downloaded the MacTex distribution.
All was OK so far.
I tried the example shown in the "Red me First " document. OK So far
After that I tried some sentences in french tthus containing é, è ù  
and accented letters.
Unfortunately those letters have disapeared in the output text. I mean  
a word like "où" or "désespérément" results in "o" and "dsprment' in  
the output.
Could you tell me how to fix that problem? I suppose that MacTex Latex  
is language free and accept any language.
I also change some encoding schemes but with no succes.

In advance thanks for help
