Re: i18n and texinfo

    Is there any quick hack with, like say, "recode -d ..tex" that will convert
    accents to the tex form (eg: \'a), and work?

People have mentioned using recode before as a workaround to having i18n
"really" work, but I don't know any details.  I am no expert on recode myself.

    Any chance of making it work smoothly, out-of-the-box?

There's always a chance :).  It's been on my list for years, unfortunately.
There have been some recent discussions about it, but I can't predict
when I'll have time to implement anything :(.  It basically means reworking
the entire font mechanism in texinfo.tex -- which would be a good thing,
all in all, but is not an especially easy thing to do.

It is definitely the most important feature to implement, in my mind ...
