How are you trying to use the accents exactly? Are you doing it inline? (e.g. <p>R&eacute;sum&eacute;</p>) That's how I usually use them. Perhaps the font you're using does not have those characters available.

You should check what character set you are supporting in your html document. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Character_encodings_in_HTML

You would want to use UTF-8
