Arf, I should have know that. Thanks for correcting me.

I must admit I don't use them regularly, but Heiko has some wrapper packages
(soulutf8 and listingsutf8) so I assumed there was problems. (I also seem to
remember Denis mentioning problems with listings). I'll check the documentation.

Oh, nice trick.

Ok, thanks for the information.

Right. I remember running some tests a while ago, and I suppose I just forgot to
test with characters higher that 256 (I was already pretty happy that things
worked with some multi-byte characters).

I just corrected the xunicode part, and quickly adapted the rest, but I'll
rework it more thouroughly later, I need to get my own ideas clear on this
subject. I hope the temporary version is acceptable in the meanwhile.

Thanks for your very useful remarks,
Manuel.
