Thank you very much for drawing this to my attention. I have installed
it and used it with limited success. For Devanagari, which I write
almost every day, I still prefer Omega, but UCS looks pretty good for
writing Sanskrit in Romanization.

I wonder if you would be so kind as to send the preamble of a LaTeX file
using Japanese and Chinese characters. The UCS documentation is a little
scanty. The Japanese that appears in my emacs editor (put there by using
mule) does not compile correctly, probably because I am making an
elementary error in the preamble to my LaTeX file.
