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 …”.
