Thank you so much for the info. I must admit that using Emacs is
against my religion.  I use nvi which does support Unicode since 2000 
or so but I have never used it. It is probably also obvious that I do
not use Linux. I am an OpenBSD guy.


P.S. If I have some time next summer I will look at into SerbianC code
and may be try to write a patch which will enable me to use Babel the 
way I use it if I write in Russian.
