Traditionally TeX assumed ascii encoding so accented characters  
needed to be represented by macros (with arguments in some cases).  
With the introduction of input encoding this isn't necessary (if you  
tell TeX what the encoding is) but it is still a fairly standard  

Did you remove the auto-completions you didn't need?

Good Luck,
