IBM's ICU4J has a normalizer which should do what you need. It's a big
library, but if you deal with multilingual text often, it might make your
life easier.

Subject: Accentuated characters

Hello everyone,

I wish to implement a TokenFilter that will remove accentuated 
characters so for example 'é' will become 'e'. As I would rather not 
reinvent the wheel, I've tried to find something on the web and on the 
mailing lists. I saw a mention of a contrib that could do this (see,

but I don't see anything applicable.

Has anyone done this yet, if so I would much appreciate some pointers 
(or code), otherwise, I'll be happy to contribute whatever I produce 
(but it might be very simple since I'll only need to deal with french).
