Article: LaTeX: It's Not Just for Academia, Part 1 Subject: unicode? Date: 2007-05-30 21:38:36 From: Vocaro Response to: unicode? Actually, I figured out how you can use Unicode in LaTeX quite easily. 1) Using Fink, install the unicode-tex package 2) Add the following line at the top of your document: \usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc} With that simple change, you can insert non-ASCII characters (such as accents and umlauts) directly into your document without having to use LaTeX's clumsy escape mechanism.
