Description Christophe Leroy 1999-12-16 13:32:51 UTC
When run latex on next dummy file, it works.


\documentclass{report}
\title{Description du logiciel}
\author{Personne}

\maketitle
\chapter{Premier chapitre}
Essai
\end{document}


If I add \usepackage[francais]{babel}, it fails like that


This is TeX, Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.1)

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 2000-01-15 23:18:59 UTC
I cannot reproduce the problem with the following input:

\documentclass{report}
\usepackage[francais]{babel}
\title{Description du logiciel}
\author{Personne}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
\chapter{Premier chapitre}
Essai
\end{document}

Here's the output I see:
