Bug list for iTe 1_1 (Aug 1998)

BUG
iTe scrambles macros in the TeX source that start with \ite and do not continue with an 'm', such as \iterate.
FIX
Replace the single occurrence of [^m] in ite.el by [^a-zA-Z].

Replace all two occurences in 'ite.el' of copypage by flushpage.

Minor modes are switched off by iTe.

instead of
         (add-hook 'latex-mode-hook 'outline-minor-mode)
