Summary description: Minimal inputenc for LuaTeX
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
This file provides a quick support for input encondings in LuaLaTeX 
(font encodings and languages will follow shortly). It is intended mainly 
for test purposes, and not as a true input encoding mechanism taking 
advantage of the possibilities provided by LuaTeX.

When used with LuaTeX, you can use two encodings--namely latin1 and 
utf8. It will give wrong results with the T1 font encoding, because 
fontenc relies on the LICR, so a lua-fontenc is on the way. With the 
package option activechars, it calls inputenc, and the LICR mechanism 
based on active chars is used. With standard TeX, lua-inputenc just 
calls inputenc (ie, activechars is the default).

This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .
