Thanks for your answer Tanner, but
In my texts I use curly quotes, and others text, i replace ASCII quote with curly quotes.
Of course I know this will not be changed soon

At last, I know - because I searched why - why my vowels (éèàíìãñõ and so on) appears twice in TA Xojo when the rtf is generated with LibreOffice, and I can do the same kind of action I note above (replace the value with another / same kind of action).

(AFAIR), onlly ASCII text was supported.
I do not tested, but the standard French for " are « and »; are-they wrong too ? No they are OK.
(and the Germans ? They disappears

My Windows 10 laptop is under repair, so I do not know how this behave under Windows.
- You can even create it from Xojo, but you have to add a Search / Replace feature.
Xojo generated rtf files default header is:
