I write in English, but many important papers I cite have authors whose names have accents.

I have no recommendation for the bibliography, but in case you create your documents with pdfTeX the LaTeX statement

\usepackage{cmap}

helps to make the PDF output with accented characters searchable in PDF viewers by mapping the well-known characters to the TeX constructs.

You probably know of

\usepackage{textcomp}

to use accented characters from the same font the other text is set with?
