The equivalent for most countries is ..... DMOZ ;)
First of all the US engines you mention have arguably become rather global engines, at least if you judge them by their users.
Also in the US there's more than odp. The influence of Yahoo is still huge.
In Europe at least there are some more directories operating in the different countries. But none can compare to the odp in influence.
So for us Europeans the game is pretty similar to the US folks: getting an odp listing is nearly mandatory.

Perhaps you were thinking of [dmoz.ch...]

Some links don´t even work (on dmoz.ch), because they forgot they can´t put é and ç in urls:

That's funny . . .
Clicking on your link directly pulls up the page fine. However, once I load the page, and then use my back and forward buttons the URL becomes broken . . .

One for the DMOZ programmers
works because the character has been put in as %e7
works because it does not use the full "francais" with the accent on the C
does not work cos it has used "ç"
For presumably technical reason, my server will not let me actually name files using accents, but I can use accents in web pages and they come out fine on the web
The moral is, I think, if in doubt, do not use accents to name files or folders. I think yu will solve the problem by removing accents from file names
Always happy to help :)

Confusing myself now
1. For some odd reason as you say
works on a once off basis, but the second timeone tries it from back button it 404s
2.The workable version does not use accents
and you can coast through the site using those

Funny... the first time I tried to click on the link from the French version, it didn´t worked. Now it´s working. Perhaps they read the post and corrected it, eheh.
