Hello,

Any help would be grately appreciated for the following problem:

I am trying to define a new command with
\def\name #1 {\gdef\@name {#1}}
This works perfectly well if, in the source file, there is
something like:
\name{George}
However, it fails if the entry contains a special character, such as:
\name{Ge\'orge}

Does anybody have a possible clue on how to make it work with
special characters also?
Thanks a lot!
Tomasz
