Removing string accents

P: n/a
Has anyone got a good idea as to how I can systematically remove accents
from characters in a string?

I.e. I want to do a function that can change "Ségolène Royal" (just to take
a current example) to "Segolene Royal" and the Swedish "förära" till
"forara" etc...

It is not important which language the string is in - all accents should be
removed. Of course I can do a replace for each character, but if theres an
easier way that will ensure that I don't forget any characters then I would
like to know.

Cheers,
Johnny J.
