TeX as input-method in GNU Emacs

I have never payed attention to the input-method in Emacs before (since I don't write strange non-Latin languages). However I found out today that I should have. I came across an really great feature:

By setting M-x set-input-method TeX one can while typing type any TeX/LaTeX symbol and it automatically gets converted to UTF-8.

Thus if you type for example \infty Emacs automatically inserts ∞
