Impossible to add a " É " character in italic in the text mode

It is impossible to write majuscule “é” (É) (ALT+ 0201) in italic in blender text mesh editor.
The alt+0201 doesn’t write anything, and pasting the letters from clipboard doesn’t work when selected bold or italic.

Add way to select text, or add ways once the text is selected to change it’s font face (to italic or bold)
(It is currently possible to select with shift+left or right arrow, but it doesn’t change the selected text to italic)

I don’t know if bug report is needed in my particular case, so I first open this thread to see.
