Yes, there's probably some such stuff. However, if that "localized  
stuff" is expressed using LaTeX control sequences (rather than  
directly as 8-bit character codes in some legacy font encoding),  
Ross's xunicode.sty package may be able to sort things out for you...  
I'm afraid I don't use any of this stuff, so I'm not really sure how  
it all interacts.
