No it doesn't. Up to 3.8 all accented characters (in fact all non-ASCII 
characters) are replaced by underscores. In 4.0 all accents will be 
stripped (so é becomes e).

The reason is that TYPO3 is a) agnostic of the charset of the filesystem 
and b) uses them possibly in URLs.

I think it may be possible to support UTF-8 encoded filesystems but not 
arbitrary encodings.
