Subject [jira] Created: (LANG-285) Wish : method unaccent

Wish : method unaccent

                 Key: LANG-285
             Project: Commons Lang
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Guillaume Coté
            Priority: Minor

I would like to add a method that replace accented caracter by unaccented one.  For example,
with the input String "L'été où j'ai dû aller à l'île d'Anticosti commenca tôt", the
method would return "L'ete ou j'ai du aller à l'ile d'Anticosti commenca tot".

I suggest to call that method unaccent and to add it in StringUtils.

If we cannot covert all case, the first version could only covert iso-8859-1.

If you are willing to go forward with that idea, I am willing to contribute a patch.
