Hi Karl,

Thanks for your reply. Btw the document in question is the
translation of the Maxima ( reference manual 
to Spanish. We're also working on a Portuguese translation.

Yes, that seems to work. Thanks!

Well, I just tried it again and @node seems to be OK.

OK, I have added @documentencoding and --enable-encoding,
but I still get separate characters. However to judge by the hundreds
of warning messages like this:

./ warning: ntilde is an invalid ISO code, using ~.
./ warning: oacute is an invalid ISO code, using '.
./ warning: iacute is an invalid ISO code, using '.

it appears the @ commands are recognized but the encoding
fails for some reason. A broken lookup table? Just guessing here.

Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate it.
