the examples of paresse gives errors because §D^§a_§d in the .dtx file 
has been replaced by ^^a7D^^^a7a_^^a7d  in the .tex file, which gives an 
error. If I regenerate the example file in latex base mode, then 
everything works OK with the ^^ified .sty; so the .sty is ok, only the 
example is wrong. But I didn't see any error in engpron...

That's true. Is there a way to fix this in TeX Live (using base LaTeX 
mode for paresse.dtx -> examples.tex and the ^^ mode for paresse.dtx -> 
paresse.sty)? Otherwise Yvon would you accept a patch (removing the 
examples from the .dtx, as they are on the ctan anyway)?

I see no reason why such extreme measures should be taken...

Thank you,
