If and only if you work with lm & ec. Otherwise building of accents is
quite useful.

Another *extremely* strange observation.
In a document with ec encoding and some accented characters, searching
for 'č' simply doesn't work. I don't understand why. I know very
little about PDF, but in the resulting document there was this line

/CharSet (/breve/one/D/U/Y/u/Ccaron/Scaron/Tcaron/Zcaron/ccaron/tcaron)

with more or less only the characters I used. The line seems to be OK,
ccaron seems to be present. Searching for 'š' works as expected (even
lower/uppercase is recognised), but at the place of 'č' only c is
recognised (if I copy-pase, only c remains at that place).
I thought that it was only Acrobat's fault, but searching for the same
letter in another document worked OK (documentation for Antiqwa for

Minimal example:


and then either searching or converting to plain text.
