	Well, hehe, it'd be worth noting that I'm a blissfully Windows 
ignorant person and, by mere coincidence, all the Windows friends I've 
exchanged files with are pretty computer savvy. So I wouldn't know if 
the compatibility is instantaneous or not. I do know Latin 1 is *not* 
the native Windows file encoding, as much as it wasn't the Mac's back 
in OS 9 days and earlier (MacRoman was), so probably the reason why *I* 
haven't seen any incompatibility is because them (my friends) have 
known how to read Latin 1 in their respective editors. Someone with 
more Windows experience than me could clear this out, maybe Rene, who 
recently spent some time setting up a Windows LaTeX environment while 
his PowerBook was taken to the hospital ;-)

	Jeje, de nada... es cómico como dos personas que hablan el mismo 
idioma se mantienen aún así con el Universal para mantener la 
"compatibilidad" con el resto de la lista! Un placer ayudarte, o 
ayudarme puesto que estoy reportando un bug, o ayudarnos... o whatever!
