The xunicode package.

The package provides access to latin accents and many other characters
in the Unicode lower plane.

This package is designed to work with TeX engines that directly
process UTF8 input and use Unicode and OpenType fonts.
At the time of writing, XeTeX is the only known engine of this kind.

(When other engines become available, the package will need modifying
not to check solely for XeTeX.)

xu­ni­code – Gen­er­ate Uni­code char­ac­ters from ac­cented glyphs

The pack­age sup­ports XeTeX’s (and other pu­ta­tive fu­ture sim­i­lar en­gines’) need for Uni­code char­ac­ters, in a sim­i­lar way to what the fontenc does for 8-bit (and the like) fonts: con­vert ac­cent-glyph se­quence to a sin­gle Uni­code char­ac­ter for out­put.

The pack­age also cov­ers glyphs spec­i­fied by pack­ages (such as tipa) which de­fine many com­mands for sin­gle text glyphs.
