platforms for which you don't have the TeX source, or (probably)
if you only have a pascal compiler. Pretend I'm a Mac user and
tell me how to install an omega-only-latex on textures.

these things always seem clear at the beginning, cloudy in the middle
and clear at the end that the original idea was wrong and what you
implemented was better than what you specified.

If it isn't easier to handle unicode in Omega than in standard TeX then
something is radically wrong with the world.

I would like that too. Tell me how!
