    Do accents work properly anywhere else? And yes, you really should provide a complete (preferably small) example: see the question on minimal working examples on meta. – SamB Dec 25 '10 at 18:44
  • Using xelatex instead of latex/pdflatex (and making sure your input is saved as Unicode UTF-8) makes a lot of these character-encoding problems go away. – Mohan Dec 11 '12 at 12:40

we need a complete example with an error description ... This works:


como se menciona en \ref{algo}.
\section{Other seccion name with áccent}\label{algo}
