The xunicode package. The package provides access to latin accents and many other characters in the Unicode lower plane. This package is designed to work with TeX engines that directly process UTF8 input and use Unicode and OpenType fonts. At the time of writing, XeTeX is the only known engine of this kind. (When other engines become available, the package will need modifying not to check solely for XeTeX.)

xunicode – Generate Unicode characters from accented glyphs
The package supports XeTeX’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.
