xunicode – Generate Unicode characters from accented glyphs

The package supports ’s (and other putative future similar engines’) need for Unicode characters, in a similar way to what the fontenc does for 8-bit (and the like) fonts: convert accent-glyph sequence to a single Unicode character for output.

The package also covers glyphs specified by packages (such as tipa) which define many commands for single text glyphs.
