I have participated in discussions both on newsgroups and on mailing 
lists for ten years and I don't remember having ever been so attacked as 
now. And all because I wanted to use a certain encoding instead of 
another one! Besides, this has nothing to do with what I wish or do not 
wish to do, since I am trying to compile a multi-chapter document in 
which each of the 15 chapters was written by a different person; it is 
not as if I am writing something myself from scratch.

Best regards,
