Don't use utf8x; with an up-to-date TeX distribution it could show necessary only for its most obscure features (faking characters with images from the Web, for instance). The problem with Greek, which was probably the main reason for adopting utf8x instead of utf8, have since be solved and \documentclass{article} \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} ...

UTF8 and ASCII are byte for byte identical for characters in the ascii range so if you have a plain text file that is ascii encoded it is also UTF-8 encoded, and similarly if it is UTF-8 encoded but only has characters in the range x00 - x7F then they are encoded directly as themselves with bytes in the same range so are valid ASCII files.

With the following changed MWE I have no warnings or errors from biber and only one warning with the .tex-file (because package filecontents generates this warning). I marked the changes with %!!!!!!!! Your MWE with some changes: \RequirePackage{filecontents} ...

you don't need to use XeLaTeX with biblatex, it works with pdflatex too. You sample compiles fine for me with pdflatex, utf8 option of fontenc, biblatex and biber for unicode bibliography support, and fontenc package with T1 and LGR options for font support (although it seems it works even without fontenc): \RequirePackage{filecontents} ...

You need to use XeTeX. you can compile this MWE with xelatex command: \documentclass[12pt,twoside]{report} \usepackage[a4paper,left=4cm,right=3cm]{geometry} \usepackage{fontspec} \usepackage[francais]{babel} \begin{document} ALLONS MANGER GRAND-MÈRE. ALLONS MANGER, GRAND-MÈRE. \end{document} So you will get a fine output.
