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


Happy TeX'ing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

With the ucs.sty package installed and mentioned 
in the LaTeX document everything's working fine.
