I know I've used them before, but I can't find the FAQ I used as
instructions back when I last did it. I know it is possible, though.

As for Unicode, I misread And's original (ii) as requesting Unicode
*characters*, no *fonts*. Like veritosproject, I suspect there must be
a way to use Unicode fontns, but I haven't done it myself. What I was
thinking of was that any Unicode characters you might want to write,
LaTeX can do.

Sorry for the confusion!
