it seems like you charset is wrong/not supporting french words. there are several ways to do this. first your webpage/webserver should support a charset that supports french words (eg utf8) and then you shuld also choose the right charset/collation for you mysql tabel (eg utf8).

please read the following article:

the collation of a table can be changed eg with hpmyadmin.
