# Side effect of Czech package? [closed]

Since I need to show a character in Czech, I use the following:

\usepackage[czech]{babel}


This makes everthing looks good including the Czech character, except for the following line showing unexpected result in the generated .pdf:

\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}
(skip)
\begin{appendices}


becomes like below instead of printing "APPENDICES":

P RÍLOHA A


Any solution idea is appreciated.

babel does not change the available characters, it changes the language elements such as section titles to the selected language (as well as setting up hyphenation for that language). If you just want a single Czech character no package should be needed. –  David Carlisle Apr 28 '12 at 16:01
@Gonzalo Medina thanks for attention. I updated the original question to try to provide info as much as possible. Just assuming the issue I had was related to the package I use? –  IsaacS Apr 29 '12 at 0:11

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

Loading this package won't do anything regarding your problem, as the fixed words such as "Příloha" are defined independently from the input encoding. What you really need for Czech is \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}. Load also inputenc, but this is for inputting the text, and it's not related to output. –  egreg Apr 29 '12 at 8:40
