Subject: [texhax] Hooked-e

Dear good people of Texhax, I was referred to you by Uwe Lueck who suggested that you might be able to answer the following random question: Do you have any idea how to typeset a hooked-e in LaTeX (I attach a sample)? I can do this with font encoding T4, but this encoding causes all sorts of unforeseen problems. I was wondering if you know of a simpler way to do this.

I have run into this problem where I tried to use the "ogonek" in a macro with several levels of grouping. The solution---if you have a font in which the character exists as a fully formed composite is, if you are already using a font in which the character exists, is to \def\ehook{\char<whatever>} and use {\ehook} (don't forget the braces) where you need it. (The simple definition will work inside many levels of braces, where complicat ed accentuation macros will not.) If your working font does not have the composite character, you will have to invoke one that does in the macro sugg est ed above.
