Another caveat: If you set the desc of an attached root prim, the desc reverts when you detach the object or prim.

Under macOS, the text seems to be restricted to ASCII only

Unlike other functions (llSay, llInstantMessage, etc.), which work with UTF-8, it seems that, at least on the Mac, this function cannot set the description field to non-ASCII characters: any non-ASCII character will be shown as "??" instead.

This was tested under the SL Viewer and Firestorm, running on macOS 11.6.5 (20G526). Both the SL Viewer and Firestorm currently have broken keyboard support for accented characters — although they display UTF-8-encoded characters perfectly (and copying & pasting to chat/IM works well) — which might influence the result, that's why I'm leaving a comment here on the Discussion tab instead of changing the page :)
