As long as you use only a ISO 8859 subset of Unicode, using the
complete ucs package is overkill. A simple

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

will suffice instead on any recent LaTeX installation (e.g., tetex-3.0)
to handle UTF-8 input files. (By the way, it is UTF-8, not UTF8).

It's on CVS.

I'm only using Western European characters and the occasional Eastern
European one, so I'll try it.

I'll try to remember "[utf8]" but "UTF-8".

### smtpmail.el and logging

I normally send mail directly from my machine using the MTA, and

However, some of my correspondents are on sites which won't accept
mail except from a machine with a valid MX record, which I don't
have. Therefore I sometimes use smtpmail.el, but I miss the
logging. Does smtpmail.el log at all? If so, how and where?

I don't understand why those sites would accept a direct SMTP connection
from your machine but not an SMTP connection via sendmail.  In any case,
smtpmail logs each transaction in the *trace of SMTP session to foo*
buffer, where foo is smtpmail-smtp-server.

For example, I've been using this for years:

"If an error is signalled, display the process buffer."
(condition-case signals-data
(error (shrink-window-if-larger-than-buffer
(display-buffer (get-buffer (format "*trace of SMTP session to %s*"
smtpmail-smtp-server))))
(signal (car signals-data) (cdr signals-data)))))

You should be able to advise smtpmail-send-it to append the contents of
the trace buffer to a log file:

(defvar smtpmail-log-file nil
"If non-nil, the name of the SMTP log file.")

Depends on how many corrections I have to make!

The bugs I noticed before (which resembled your bug, though I'm not sure
they're actually the same ones) seem to have been fixed in CVS.

Another option than the -*- cookie is to try and autodetect which it is.
I.e. write

(defun fortran-77-or-90-mode ()
(if (... check the buffer, looking for special language constructs
and/or keywords that only exist in one of the two dialects...)
(fortran-mode)
(f90-mode)))
