Re: gnu vs. xemacs

When I started using Emacs one year ago I knew almost nothing. I was
thinking XEmacs is Emacs for X-Window systems (like many people seem
to do). So I installed it, mainly because I use LaTeX since many
years and I was looking for a Linux editor as powerful as WinEdt which
I had been using under MS-Windows. 

To my disappointment XEmacs was not able to handle all the
utf8-characters I needed. It might be a matter of my too small
knowledge at that time, but I couldn't get the diacritics needed for
Sanskrit transcriptions to work. Somewhere I read that XEmacs doesn't
fully support unicode representation. However, it worked immediately
with GnuEmacs. Namely I need characters like underdotted t or n which
represent certain Indian consonants spoken with the tongue bent

Best wishes,
