Please show your LinkFreeze config.
And if possible, demonstate the issue online.

The real URL is: http://www.celebri.ro/celebrity.asp?nid=6582&profession=Actor&name=Francois+Berland

The c from Francois is with cedilla.

With cedilla it doesn't work.

Ok, further investigation showed that this problem is fixed by setting the System locale to French.

I think there is also a problem with search engines if they found links like this...

The users don't know to switch System locale from English to French

Look, the issue is:

With the urls you had (before using LinkFreeze) it was ok to use French specific characters as they were located in query string. But,
LinkFreeze moves them into the url itself and serch engines interpret them somehow. To have it working correctly with such characters, they
should be UTF-8 encoded (like %xxxx).

Also please notice that users don't need to change their locale.
