Thanks! I didn't think to look there because the report I finished a couple
of weeks ago also used authordate4 and had no problems compiling. All the
authordate flavors have the same issue. I removed \sc, \em, and \bf.

I'm surprised that the .bst files have these deprecated character encodings
as TexLive2019 is installed.

For a while I had the font encoding option set to use the old formats but
that caused other issues.

Guess I should report this to TUG. In the meantime I'll try replacing these
old forms with their longer replacement in authordate3 and see if that

Best regards,
