Hi all when I try to compile a tex document like the following:


\begin{document} \setromanfont{Times}

é à


I get:

This is XeTeXk, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.995 (Web2C 7.5.5)
Typesetting: ./main.tex

Document Class: report 2005/09/16 v1.4f Standard LaTeX document class
./main.tex:11: Paragraph ended before é was complete.

I'm using TextMate to edit LaTeX on OSX.

When instead of é à I use other utf-8 chars like kanji everything works fine.

if I use plain gwTeX instead it accepts the accented letters (but not
the kanji of course).

Does anyone know why?

Thanks for your help.
