Hi all,

I'm newbie using Antlr and I'm facing a problem when trying to parse a text
that contains accentuated chars in Brazilian Portuguese.

I've put a word definition on my grammar as follows:

		WORD :			( '\u00c0'..'\u00ff' | 'a'..'z' |
'A'..'Z' | '-' )+ ;

But have no success on parsing. Words like "não" ("no" in Portuguese) causes
lexar throws "Antlr.Runtime.NoViableAltException".

I'm trying to use C#.

Any hint?
