AGS: Text outline does not work for accented/special characters

In some AGS games the texts are shown with an additional black outline (IIRC this is a workaround that was added some time ago to fix another bug), unfortunately it does not work correctly for accented or other special characters (maybe for any non-ASCII character?), which are common in many non-english localizations.
As you can see in the screenshots the outlines for 'è' 'ì' and 'ß' are not shown and the entire "outline string" shifts to the left.

Tested on ScummVM 2.6.0pre1 and master, "special" characters are now properly outlined.
