I recommend to switch to ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/auctex .

Though it is a CVS snapshot, it is absolutely reliable.  I'm using the
Windows binary at work and I compiled it from the sources on Linux at
home.  Don't worry about the word "alpha" in the URL, it's absolutely

The main reason I mention this is because the multi-language environment
had been improved significantly.

If the input encoding of your TeX file is latin1 and you insert stuff
from another file which uses another encoding vector, this will always

What you could try is to paste the stuff from the PDF file to a
separate file and convert it to latin1 before you put it into your TeX
file.  The only tool I kwow which does such a conversion is


but there might be others.

The problem is that you probably don't know which encoding vector is
used in the PDF file.  Regarding this, I must admit that I don't have
any good idea.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
