8.20 unicode

Import this package at the beginning of the file to instruct LaTeX to accept unicode (UTF-8) standardized international characters. To use Cyrillic fonts, you will need to change the font encoding:

import unicode;
texpreamble("\usepackage{mathtext}\usepackage[russian]{babel}");
defaultpen(font("T2A","cmr","m","n"));

Support for Chinese, Japanese, and Korean fonts is provided by the CJK package:

http://mirror.ctan.org/languages/chinese/CJK/

The following commands enable the CJK song family (within a label, you can also temporarily switch to another family, say kai, by prepending "\CJKfamily{kai}" to the label string):

texpreamble("\usepackage{CJK}
\AtBeginDocument{\begin{CJK*}{GBK}{song}}
\AtEndDocument{\clearpage\end{CJK*}}");
