The following ECM works fine when compiled with XeLaTeX, but if compiled with LuaLaTeX there is a minor problem : accented letter produces garbage in the pdftitle — but it's fine in the document . I precise (after some tests) that it is not related to a particular font.


P.S. Maybe it's not relevant here, but in case : I'm on mac 10.6

After test, `a \'e`e\oe etc. do the work, but it's quite a pity to have to write this with an engine that support UTF8. Hence, I would ask for a nicer answer. – Matsaya Feb 8 '11 at 21:17

It's work, thanks. Now the remaining question (it's only curiosity) is : why is it no problem with XeLaTeX ? – Matsaya Feb 9 '11 at 16:38
I believe that at the moment hyperref treats LuaTeX the same as pdfTeX, but contains dedicated code for XeTeX. But only Heiko could give a definitive answer. – Philipp Feb 9 '11 at 18:43
XeTeX is using unicode by default. – Horst Grünbusch Jul 5 at 15:05
