Hello everyone.

I need to introduce non ASCII standar characters (but
used in lenguages like spanish or french) in content
rules, but Snort complaints about it.

I mean rules like this:

	content: "café";

So, I have to questions:

a) What characters can't be used in content rules? (in
addition to " ; and |)
b) How could I introduce these characters? (maybe escaping
them, but what ISO ASCII extension should I use?)
