Accented characters in a tabbing environment

Problem: accented letters don’t display properly within the tabbing environment in LaTeX, even if you put curly brackets around them.

Solution: use the Tabbing (with a capital T) environment instead. This requires a couple of alterations to the symbols used in the ordinary tabbing environment:

  • Instead of using =, use TAB=.
  • Instead of using >, use TAB>.

You should be able to get accented characters as per normal, either with curly brackets (‘{e}) or without (‘e).

You’ll need to use the Tabbing.sty package to use the Tabbing environment.
