Description of problem:
Please provide the ucs.sty package or a simular one.
The mentioned package contains support for using UTF-8
as input encoding in LaTeX documents.
The simplest use of that package is to add
to the LaTeX source instead of the traditionally
after editing the document with UTF-8 input.
The most recent version of the package can
be found at
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter UTF-8 characters (try the Scandinavian 'f', 'x', 'e') in
a LaTeX document from Emacs.
2. Run latex document.tex and, after hitting return on the error,
try to view it in xdvi.
Actual Results: Bad DVI encoding.
With the ucs.sty package installed and mentioned
in the LaTeX document everything's working fine.
