The STACS software currently accepts the following encoding schemes: 7 bit ASCII, ISO-Latin-1, international LaTeX, german.sty LaTeX, and HTML. If you don't know about one encoding, I'ld recommend not to use it - explaining it at depth is beyond the scope of this online help, anyway. For a quick comparison, here's an example of a string in all five encodings:
|7 bit ASCII||Michael Mueller||National character transcribed as two characters so as to stay in the "lower half" of ASCII|
|ISO-Latin-1||Michael Müller||Needs to have ISO-Latin-1 compatible fonts available to display properly|
|(International) LaTeX||Michael M\"uller|
|german.sty LaTeX||Michael M"uller||"Abbreviations" for German national characters|
|HTML||Michael Müller||See this list of HTML entities (at Netscape)|
(If you happen to know about a widely used "national" French LaTeX command set, please drop me a line.)
