I am using style PNAStwo (for a submission to PNAS).

However, its fonts for authors, affiliations and abstract seem do not contain non-latin characters like ł (\l) or ø (\o), and produce some random symbols like ". (In the main text such letters work perfectly fine, tough.)

Is there a workaround to use ł (which is part of my surname) in \author{...}?

Ideally, in a way so my surname is parsed to Migdał or, at least, Migdal.

  • Do you happen to know the encoding of your .tex files? If it is, say, utf8, you may need to issue commands such as \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} along with \usepackage[T1]{fontenc}.

  • @Mico There is \usepackage[T1]; \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} does not change anything (I've tested it; as there is exactly the same problem with ł as with \l). Sep 19, 2013 at 18:21
  • I downloaded the class, and tried filling the template with \author{Piotr Migda\l \affil{1}{Somewhere}}. The result is what's expected. Can you present a small example? Did you change the font settings in the pnastwof.sty file?

Using \usepackage{OT1enc} solved the problem.
