Hi guys,

See below. Does anybody have a chance to investigate? There is nothing
I can do on my non-mac,non-texlive system, I am afraid.

Just to be sure I tested a few more times. It works fine in gwTeX  .
I tried it on TeXLive-2007, the other package from Dick Kock's site.
The euro symbol comes out right but the pound sterling £ is randomly
changed to a dollar sign $. Also some accented words are garbled as
well as some dashes. I trashed all auxiliary files to make sure no
corruption was carried to a new run but these problems persisted. So
the gwTeX distribution deals with it properly but not TeXLive-2007.

Apologies for not testing a bit more before sending off the e-mail.
I hope this is of some help.
