Take care.

A Swedish friend of mine has the letter ö in his Facebook password. No
problem on a Swedish computer - or a German one, possibly, or Turkish
or Hungarian - but on a computer with a British or American (or the
other 9/10ths of the world) keyboard, he can't log in.

Yes you can use ƒáñçÿ accented letters in your password, but you might
find them very hard or impossible to enter away from your own machine
with your own keyboard preferences.
