do you mean that even if i save the file as UNIX in alpha, it still  
is in MacRoman and not UTF-8?

after saving the file as UNIX in alpha, i did the entire latex/bibtex/ 
latex/latex run again (after i deleted all aux files and everything  
else that was created); the result is the same as before.

since i do not know whether UNIX option in alpha equals UTF-8, i  
cannot say whether the suggested modifications worked or not.

best, olli.
