That's not my observation (and I use the Internet in French for 17
years). At a time, most people "knew" that "you cannot use accents on
the Internet" but, now, we have quite the opposite. Ordinary users
assume they can use the normal French orthography, to the point that
people routinely publishes domain names with accents, even while ".fr"
does not allow IDN.
