The LaTeX inputenc package

Version: 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word

The inputenc package maps certain characters to their corresponding TeX macros according to the encoding option you select through the Options and Packages command on the Typeset menu. Available options include ISO Latin-1, ISO Latin-2, and others.

The package has no effect in SWP or SW, but when a document containing the package is opened in an ASCII editor, encoded characters appear correctly rather than as TeX code if the input encoding corresponds to the current code page for the system. For example, when the ISO Latin-1 option is selected as the font encoding scheme, the character à appears in an ASCII editor as à instead of as \~{A}.

The following options to the inputenc package are recognized by the program:

Version 5.5 Version 5.0
ansinew cp437 ansinew
latin1 cp437de latin1
latin2 cp850 applemac
latin3 cp852 next
latin4 cp858 cp437
latin5 cp865 cp437de
latin9 cp866 cp850
latin10 cp1250 cp852
applemac cp1252 cp865
decmulti cp1257

Note To maintain a consistent interpretation of any non-ASCII characters, you must choose the ASCII (Normal) character set option when you save a document to which you have added the inputenc package.

The inputenc package may simplify collaboration on documents written in some non-English languages.

See the package documentation for more information. The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/base directory.
