This is exactly what I use, because Bruno Voisin and Piet van Oostrum showed
me that with OT1 I get the following hyphenation with the word murciélago
(yes, my mother language is Spanish as well) as an example: mur-ciéla-go;
with T1, on the other hand, I get mur-cié-la-go. That is to say, with OT1 I
don't get an otherwise correct hyphenation where an accent occurs.
