# Re: Incompatibility between spanish (babel) and plainpages option of hyperref.

Thanks Mauricio, and NO, it is not the case that I only use babel to
get accented and special characters. I do want to use spanish (from
babel) because it does many other useful things: translate many
captions ("chapter", "section", etc. to spanish), use apropriate
styling conventions for typesetting in spanish (spacing, etc.).

On the other hand, for portability issues between operating systems and
character encodings, I do not want to use inputenc. The activeacute
option from spanish is just great for my needs.

Hopefully someone can find a workarround to use both packages
together.. Which seems a very reasonable thing to do.

I hope I do that (but I'm not sure)

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[spanish,english]{babel}
\usepackage[plainpages=false]{hyperref}

\begin{document}
\selectlanguage{spanish}

\pagenumbering{roman}

Hello World

\end{document}

I try to understand this error but I failed. If someone can explain... Perhaps a strange \Atbegindocument in spanish.ldf?
