 I hope it is less confusing now.

It is. And one solution is enough... ;-)

Moreover, I guess putting the arguments on a LaTeX line makes it more
portable: what would happen with those arguments for HTML, for example? Here,
a simple mychangemargin DIV won't hurt.

 Correct.

I think this is quite elegant...

With what you say below, we then have 3 different solutions (at least) for new
environments:

- the one above, where you add a new environment definition (but, then, it's
  kind of private for your own files; difficult to share)

- the Org special blocks, ancient way, which you've fixed

#+begin_myenv{2cm}
Contents...
#+end_myenv

- the Org special blocks, new way, with the OPTIONS

#+LaTeX_ATTR: :options {2cm}
#+begin_myenv{2cm}
Contents...
#+end_myenv

Now, a big question: outside the fact that some such standards (like
texpos1) would have to be added IMHO as default Beamer environments, what
about standard LaTeX?

I think normal, then, to wanna get that same behavior in the LaTeX backend.
How to do that?  I'm a bit puzzled by the differences to get some similar
results...

- In LaTeX, you have the inline tasks which can be used to insert blocks, but
  not the system where you create blocks by adding an ignoreheading heading,
  right?

- In Beamer, we have both?  And, for whatever reason (which must escape me),
  we tend to prefer the ignoreheading for closing a block.

In my latest slides, I've been quite disturbed by how much pure LaTeX I've
finally inserted in my slides, for inserting TikZ nodes to render boxes. I had
the impression to write LaTeX inside an Org file; and that's not the right
approach:

- too much LaTeX tag overload,

- no HTML equivalent for the contents of my boxes -- while, as presented here
  above for the textpos, even in HTML, it'd be quite nice.

- no Org syntax usable: inside my boxes (TikZ nodes), I had to use \textbf for
  bold, not the stars...

Now, there are, once again, other extra solutions: MACRO and Org Babel calls.

Too much solutions...

I don't understand your question. Equivalent blocks do not exist in
standard LaTeX, do they? Also, this has nothing to do with inlinetasks.

In Beamer export, headlines can generate blocks. This is handy because
they can be easily nested, accept properties through drawers, etc.
Special blocks are more limited. Though, you cannot close a headline, so
the ignoreheading trick was implemented.

In LaTeX export, headlines generate headlines.

Hi Vikas,

Vikas Rawal wrote:
 I am trying to use textpos to position images at specific location on
 a frame.

I now use TikZ to do that. I have the impression it is easier. Though, I have
the real impression of writing LaTeX inside an Org buffer... which I dislike.
I'd like to write text as text, and still get the ability to convert that to
HTML, for review, even if the layout wouldn't be (at all) the same.

 I would like something like this in the beamer export:

 \begin{textblock}{10}(3,3) \visible 2- {
 \includegraphics[width=.9\linewidth]{scatterplot2.png}
 } \end{textblock}

 I have defined the following beamer environment.

 (add-to-list 'org-beamer-environments-extra
  '(textpos1 w \\begin{textblock}{%h}(3,3) \\visible %a { } 
 \\end{textblock}))

You normally could use such a block (the old org-special-blocks, now
integrated in Org 8 -- thanks Nicolas):

--8---cut here---start-8---
  #+begin_textblock
  Contents
  #+end_textblock
--8---cut here---end---8---

 The problem is (3,3) is fixed in the above specification. How can I
 specify it for a given headline? I have tried various ways of
 generalising this but nothing seems to work.

 For example, if I use the following:

 (add-to-list 'org-beamer-environments-extra
  '(textpos1 w \\begin{textblock}%h \\visible %a { } 
 \\end{textblock}))

 and write the headline as {10}(3,3), I get \{10\}(3,3) in beamer
 export rather than {10}(3,3).

Though, the problem stays the same with what I think is the right way to do
it...

See how Org gets converted to LaTeX:

--8---cut here---start-8---
  #+begin_myenvironment   \begin{myenvironment}
  Test of a new   Test of a new
  environment.environment.
  #+end_myenvironment \end{myenvironment}
--8---cut here---end---8---

That's OK. But the environment had no parameters.

--8---cut here---start-8---
  #+begin_myenvironment{3}\#+begin\_myenvironment\{3\}
  Test of a new   Test of a new
  environment.environment.
  #+end_myenvironment \#+end\_myenvironment
--8---cut here---end---8---

That's completely invalid LaTeX.

--8---cut here---start-8---
  #+begin_myenvironment {3}   \begin{myenvironment}
  Test of a new   Test of a new
  environment.environment.
  #+end_myenvironment \end{myenvironment}
--8---cut here---end---8---

That's valid LaTeX, but the arguments of the environment have been ignored!

IIRC, that's how we did before, with the original `org-special-blocks' file.

 How does one use the escape %o? I have looked through ox-beamer.el,
 worg and mailing list archives, but could not find a clear
 explanation. Will be grateful for a pointer.

I've no idea. I wonder as well how we do this.

Best regards,
  Seb
