One question: why do you recommend utf8 instead of utf8x? I must admit I forgot why I made that choice when I thought about that problem.

Thanks. I am undecided about leaving the £ outside of math mode. I tend to agree that they detract from the maths, yet at the same the currency is a system of units and just as in physics formulae, the units are often part of the equation.

In the meantime I'm putting the £ outside math-mode, so it's not as if this is critical, but I would like to know the answer.
