;;; Commentary:
;;
;; Transform LaTeX encoded non-ASCII characters to and from their
;; visible (utf-8) representations when visiting a file and preserve
;; their original encoding when saving the buffer.
;;
;; TeX/LaTeX documents often contain special characters that are not
;; available in ASCII code in a special command form. For example, the
;; German umlaut ä can be written in LaTeX as {\"a}, \"{a}, \"a or
;; even "a. Of course, nowadays one should an ecoding like utf-8 that
;; contain a natural representation of these characters.
;; Unfortunately, old documents may still use the old encodings or
;; non-ASCII encodings are not allowed for other reasons. Emacs can
;; already automatically encode and decode such characters from and to
;; their LaTeX representation using the `iso-cvt' package: during
;; editing the characters are utf-8 encoded but when saved to disk the
;; characters are transformed to a LaTeX representation.
;;
;; Unfortunately, this an all-or-nothing approach: either all
;; characters are transformed or none. But when working on a document
;; with several author this may be problematic. This may particularly
;; true if the document is stored in a revision control system. In
;; these cases each author may use its own editor, each editor may
;; have its own setting and encodes umlauts in a special preferred
;; way. Each time one author does a small change, *all* umlauts in the
;; whole document may get transformed. This may also lead to huge
;; diffs that contain of many hunks that only change the encoding of
;; some characters.
;;
;; The purpose of `tex-smart-umlauts' is to automatically encode and
;; decode umlauts from and to their tex representation, while
;; *preserving* the original encoding. In other words, when a LaTeX
;; file is visited, the original encoding of each character is saved
;; and the character is transformed to its visible (utf-8)
;; representation. When the document is saved again, each character
;; that has been present when the document has been loaded is saved in
;; its *original* encoding. Only newly inserted non-ASCII characters
;; get a new encoding that depends on the user-options of
;; `tex-smart-umlauts'. This way, a small change in a document will
;; not reencode all non-ASCII charactes as `iso-cvt' would do and only
;; the modified parts of the document will really be modified on disk.
;;
;;; Usage:
;;
;; Simply add
;;
;; (add-hook 'LaTeX-mode-hook #'tex-smart-umlauts-decode)
;;
;; to your .emacs file. This will convert all LaTeX-encoded characters
;; to their resp. visible encoding and store their original encodings.
;; This will also automatically register the encoding so that the
;; original encodings are restored when the buffer is saved.
