So what's the point in @SysInclude{ latin2 } then if it does *not* make 
latin-2 characters available? I think I'm missing something ...

I will. But coming back to the accent problem. Say I want an s with a ^ accent.
The obvious address@hidden circumflex}s puts the s beneath the circumflex and
address@hidden circumflex}|{-10p}s puts it even farther away. What should I do? 
When
talking about accented characters occurring frequently, the clean solution would
be a soft font, but changing the font for an occasional character is not a very
economic solution.
