# How to highlight a non-ascii keyword using the listings package? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to highlight a couple of keywords which contain non-ASCII characters using the listingsutf8 package. This is the relevant part of my document:

\usepackage[brazilian]{babel}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8x]{inputenc}
\usepackage{listingsutf8}
\lstset{
extendedchars=true,
inputencoding=utf8x,
keywords={Funcionalidade, Para, Como, Eu, Contexto, Cenário, Dado, Quando, Então},
literate=%
{á}{{\'a}}1
{ã}{{\~a}}1
{ç}{{\c{c}}}1
{é}{{\'e}}1
{ê}{{\^e}}1
{õ}{{\~o}}1
{ó}{{\'o}}1
}


The ASCII only keywords are being highlighted correctly, but the Cenário and Então keywords are not. I have also tried with emph and changing inputencoding, but it doesn't work either:

\lstset{
inputencoding=utf8/latin1,
emph={Cenário, Cen\'ario, Cenario},emphstyle={\bfseries}
}


If it's relevant, the listing I'm trying to highlight comes from a separate file, using the \lstinputlisting command. If I had to guess, I would say that it has something to do with the literate params.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The highlight for Cenário will work just fine if you use XeLaTeX -- if it's suitable for your workflow, that is. –  LianTze Lim Dec 9 '11 at 15:53
The detection of keywords in listings doesn't work well with UTF-8 encoded files. With latin1 encoding, specifying Cenário as keyword does what you want. Please, try providing a minimal example. –  egreg Dec 9 '11 at 16:23
Unfortunately, I cannot use XeLaTeX right now. I have updated the question with a more concrete example. –  Tomas Mattia Dec 10 '11 at 20:26

Try the listingsutf8 package from the oberdiek bundle. It offers a workaround exactly for the \lstinputlisting command.

I have tried (and edited the question to reflect the changes I have made), but even with the listingsutf8 package the keyword is not being highlighted. –  Tomas Mattia Dec 10 '11 at 20:25
Too bad. And I have no other idea. –  Thorsten Donig Dec 11 '11 at 10:44
