I'm using classicthesis. In my bibliography.bib file I have an author like this:

@Book{m,
 author = {M\'endez, blah blah},
 title = {Title 1},
 publisher = {aaa},
 year = {2006}
 }

@Book{m2,
 author = {M\'endez, blah blah},
 title = {Title 2},
 publisher = {aaa},
 year = {2006}
 }

I am using the alpha bibliography style. This style, instead of displaying [Me06a] or [Mé06a] and [Me06b] or [Mé06b], displays [Mó6a] and [Mó6b]. I've tried with

author = {M{\'e}ndez, blah blah}

or

author = {{M\'e}ndez, blah blah},

but that didn't really help. Does anybody know how to solve this?

With this minimal file

\begin{filecontents*}{\jobname.bib}
@Book{m,
 author = {M{\'e}ndez, blah blah},
 title = {Title 1},
 publisher = {aaa},
 year = {2006}
 }

@Book{m2,
 author = {M{\'e}ndez, blah blah},
 title = {Title 2},
 publisher = {aaa},
 year = {2010}
 }
\end{filecontents*}
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\nocite{*}
\bibliographystyle{alpha}
\bibliography{\jobname}
\end{document}

I get the following output

The filecontents* environment is just to have a self-contained file.

yes, sorry, I didn't mentioned I was using classicalthesis. –  c.p. Sep 20 '12 at 22:55
    
@JorgeCampos It doesn't matter; the mark is still "Mén06", because the font uses "oldstyle numbers". –  egreg Sep 20 '12 at 23:10
    
I see, sorry, I compiled again and it worked fine. Don't know what was happening. –  c.p. Sep 20 '12 at 23:18
