Personally I use the "franšais" form for a few reasons. First, search engine can't mess up searching for it, fewer characters in the html (every little bit helps :), and as long as Content-Type is set correctly and Unicode encoding is used, it seems to work in more browsers than the long form - especially when you get into less common letters.
