This package contains support for using UTF-8 as input encoding in LaTeX

See INSTALL for installation instructions.

The simplest use of this package is to add


to your header. You may even omit the first line in many cases. Often
however you need to load additional packages etc., see languages.ps.gz
for language-specific examples.

The tables with LaTeX macros for the glyphs does not contain many
entries yet. If your particular script is not supported, and you add the
macros to the config files (see INSTALL and perldoc makeunidef.pl),
please mail me those config files, and together with informations, if
special packages or LaTeX versions are needed for these macros. Please
do only supply macros, which generate aesthetic glyphs, no hacks.

ucs – Ex­tended UTF-8 in­put en­cod­ing sup­port for

The bun­dle pro­vides the ucs pack­age, and ut­f8x.def, to­gether with a large num­ber of sup­port files.

The ut­f8x.def def­i­ni­tion file for use with in­pu­tenc cov­ers a wider range of Uni­code char­ac­ters than does utf8.def in the dis­tri­bu­tion. The pack­age pro­vides fa­cil­i­ties for ef­fi­cient use of its large sets of Uni­code char­ac­ters.

Glyph pro­duc­tion may be con­trolled by var­i­ous op­tions, which per­mits use of non-ASCII char­ac­ters when cod­ing math­e­mat­i­cal for­mu­lae.

Note that the bun­dle pre­vi­ously had an alias “uni­code”; that alias has now been with­drawn, and no pack­age of that name now ex­ists.
