In other words as far as LaTeX2e is concerned there will not be incompatible changes of any such kind. as to the exact meaning of the commands argument, fntguide.tex says \begin{decl} |\DeclareFontEncoding| \arg{encoding} \arg{text-settings}                        \arg{math-settings} \end{decl} Declares a new encoding scheme \m{encoding}. The \m{text-settings} are declarations which are executed every time |\selectfont| changes the encoding to be \m{encoding}. The \m{math-settings} are similar but are for math alphabets. They are executed whenever a math alphabet with this encoding is called. Spaces within the arguments are ignored to avoid surplus spaces in the document. If a real space is necessary use |\space|. ------------------------------------------ as you notice there is no restoration other then the one via grouping  > David Carlisle wrote:  >  > > \DeclareTextSymbol{\CYRV}{LCY}{198}  >  > BTW, why not to write \DeclareTextSymbol\CYRV{LCY}{198}, i.e. without  > unnecessary braces?  > I do not like to type unnecessary characters in my texts. :-) it is good style ;-) yes it has its uses as it allows to parse stuff in an easier way. for example if you do \newcommand\foo{} then latex2html will not parse it correctly. but i personally also prefer leaving the braces out in this case (don't tell anybody :-) also it has one big advantage of being uniform, you can learn as a new user that arguments have braces (simple :-) frank`
