I'm still confused about getting the long suffering Johan's name right on the authors list.
I understood you have changed this so that 'Johan R\u00E5de'. should work.
But it doesn't seem to in the author field. So I am using the UTF-8 file type and inserting char E5 with charmap still.
In the main sections it works fine thus:
Greek \u0396 Zeta
Math \u00BE for 3/4
\u221E for infinity
Greek Î Zeta
Math Â¾ for 3/4 â for infinity
Am I doing something wrong or do we have to use a UTF file type? ( should I worry that it causes trouble with SVN? and text editors?
or is this still a TODO? ;-)
