Thank you very much for this information. Until now I have never found a
LaTeX package for CJK that I could figure out how to use with emacs on
Linux. All the CJK LaTeX packages I have seen are extremely complex, and
they have all defeated me. I can't recall whether UCS was one of the
ones that I tried, but I think it was. Perhaps I should try it again.

I have noticed that more and more messages on the H-BUDDHISM list are
displaying Chinese and Japanese characters, so clearly lots of people
are getting the hang of using unicode on their computers. It is a vast
improvement over the days when all we could use was ASCII.
