I have some references containing \dh and \TH. When using these symbols in either the LaTeX source or the .bib file I only get a black box. Neither \dh nor ð works. According to the documentation, T1 only is needed which is what I already use.

.tex and .bib files use utf8 without BOM as encoding. Here's a short example:

\usepackage{scrhack}%ignore Warning float@addtolist
%\usepackage{autofe}%(not working) bugfix: \dh und \TH

\dh \TH Þ ð þ

What is needed to render these Letters correctly?

the package ae is obsolete and should not be used any-more. Maybe this is causing you some trouble/package conflicts – Martin H Jun 14 '11 at 7:46
@Martin H: that was exactly it – mbx Jun 14 '11 at 8:29
