Check out the free Microsoft Style Guide Oct 19, 2010

The MS Style Guide has a whole section on this topic. Among other things they recommend avoid choosing letters with a downstroke like q and g or letters with accents like é, é, ë, ê, à, â, î, ù, etc.

For more information see the MS Style Guide, which you can download here:
http://www.microsoft.com/Language/en-US/StyleGuides.aspx

Make sure to select the French version. (The guide itself is in English, but some of the topics are country specific.)
