This should be at your lo­cal mir­ror. Jim Hef{}feron Saint Michael's Col­lege ........................................................................ The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by our fel­low con­trib­u­tor: Name of con­tri­bu­tion: uchar­classes Ver­sion num­ber: 1.0 Author's name: Michiel Kamer­mans Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: /macros/xe­tex/la­tex/uchar­classes Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: A XeLaTeX pack­age for au­to­matic code in­ser­tion be­tween uni­code blocks, such as au­to­matic font switch­ing for dif­fer­ent lan­guages Li­cense type: other-non­free An­nounce­ment text:
This pack­age ad­dresses one of the few fea­tures where TeX still has to play catch-up to word pro­cess­ing pro­grams: au­to­matic font switch­ing for dif­fer­ent lan­guages. In fact, it goes one bet­ter than word pro­cess­ing pro­grams and comes with macros for in­sert­ing ar­bi­trary code be­tween text from dif­fer­ent uni­code blocks, by mak­ing use of XeTeX's lit­tle known "in­ter­char­class" be­haviour.
This pack­age is at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/xe­tex/la­tex/uchar­classes . In­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/uchar­classes (it may take a day for the in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . For your users group see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html .

uchar­classes – Font ac­tions in ac­cord­ing to what is be­ing pro­cessed

The pack­age takes care of switch­ing fonts when you switch from one Uni­code block to an­other in the text of a doc­u­ment. This way, you can write a doc­u­ment with no ex­plicit font se­lec­tion, but a se­ries of rules of the form “when en­ter­ing block …, switch font to use …”.
