Response to: unicode?

Sorry to say, but LaTeX's unicode support stinks. I know, you can get it to work with anything, but it doesn't Just Work (the reason is probably that unicode wasn't yet invented when Knuth wrote TeX). There's a next generation LaTeX project called Omega, that aims to support unicode, but it's been going on for years without any visible progress whatsoever.

Don't get me wrong, I love LaTeX and use it for most anything, but it is tedious to write and definitely has its shortcomings.
