 default font encoding Frank Mittelbach <[log in to unmask]> Mon, 29 Jan 2001 21:22:55 +0100 text/plain (20 lines) we have publically announced often enough that the core of 2e is essentially frozen except for serious bug fixes and new development should happen at package level --- all this because of compatibility making sure that documents do work identically (as far as possible) from one maintenence release to the next, and i still think this is the right decision. i nevertheless begin to wonder if we should change the default font encoding from OT1 to T1 so that more people get proper hyphenation without the need to say   \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} in their documents and would be interested to hear what the opinion on this list would be (not that i consider this list a representative sample of the average LaTeX user). opinions? frank
