     *  The tables for the conversion of ISOlat1 to "best" ASCII follow a
        system developed by Markus Kuhn.

     *  `ISOlat1.2tex' is based on a latin1 to TeX table by (I think) Peter

     *  Other TeX symbols were grabbed individually from numerous sources.

     *  ISOlat1 etc. are from the ISO.
