(Question split off from here.)

If you try to use the aeguill package (which adds some guillemets to the ae fonts) with Babel and Hebrew:



you get:

LaTeX Font Warning: Font shape `HE8/aer/m/n' undefined (Font)
using `HE8/cmr/m/n' instead on input line 2.

("C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINXP\Application Data\MiKTeX\2.9\tex\gen eric\babel\he8cmr.fd")) ! Corrupted NFSS tables. wrong@fontshape ...message {Corrupted NFSS tables} error@fontshape else let f... l.6 \begin{document}

How can this be overcome?


  • The guillemets are not so interesting for English of course.
  • The commented-out inputenc line is what you'd need to actually insert any Hebrew, but it's not necessary to trigger the error.
  • Suggestions to switch to XeLaTeX are not relevant.
  • For the sake of completeness, here's an MWE with guillemets:

    שלום עולם.
    Some guillemets: « Le quicqe brun Foxe a jumpee sur le laizie 
    Chien. » ... these should look nicer with \texttt{aeguill}.

The package aeguill is largely obsolete. You should declare the T1 encoding


and remove the call to aeguill.
