Unicode characters in bibtex
Bibtex is not really unicode aware. In order to use extended
characters, you need to use the standard Tex replacements.
You might however want to use
biblatex for a better management of bibliographic styles; and
maybe have a look at biber, which aims to
become a unicode aware Bibtex replacement.

manual explains what a LaTeX source file must contain to
work with BibTeX. Appendix B of the manual describes the
format of the .bib files. The ’BibTeXing’
document describes extensions and details of this format,
and it gives other useful hints for using BibTeX.
-min-crossrefs option defines the minimum
number of crossref required for automatic inclusion
of the crossref’d entry on the citation list; the
default is two. With the -terse option, BibTeX
operates silently. Without it, a banner and progress reports
are printed on stdout.
BibTeX searches the directories in the path defined by the
BSTINPUTS environment variable for .bst files. If
BSTINPUTS is not set, it uses the system default. For .bib
files, it uses the BIBINPUTS environment variable if that is set,
otherwise the default. See tex(1) for the details of the
If the environment variable TEXMFOUTPUT is set, BibTeX attempts
to put its output files in it, if they cannot be put in the
current directory. Again, see tex(1). No special searching
is done for the .aux file.
