omega – A wide-character-set extension of TeX
A development of TeX, which deals in multi-octet Unicode characters, to enable native treatment of a wide range of languages without changing character-set.
Work on Omega has ceased (the TeX Live package contains only support files); its compatible successor is aleph, which is itself also in major maintenance mode only. Ongoing projects developing Omega (and Aleph) ideas include Omega-2 and LuaTeX.
