Basically, my problem is that according to:


The area covered by fontenc is pretty much also covered by inputenc.

Also, the FAQ says that "only fontenc has the means to convert [\'e]  
into the T1 character", but I just found that in Texshop I could type  
\'e without _any_ fontenc preamble and LaTeX was still able to process  

Considering that I'm thinking about people who _won't_ type such  
sequences, but rather "é" directly, what is the preferred/more modern/ 
more intuitive choice. fontenc or inputenc ? I'd personally go for  
inputenc if I understood all the implications...
