Re: latex paragraph export

1999-12-07 Thread John Wetterau

Andre,

Thanks for your reply. It finally occurred to me to look at the html
source produced by latex2html (view source while displayed by browser)
The header info contained a reference to a stylesheet. This turned out
to be an external file with an extension of .css (cascading style
sheets) that was generated by latex2html. I hunted around on the net and
found specs for css files. Was able to solve the problem!

For indented paragraphs with no line skips in html display generated by
latex2html:

P {text-indent: 2em}
P {margin-top: 0em}

add the above 2 commands to the filename.css file created automatically
by latex2html

Probably there is some style or other that would cause this to happen,
but I can't find it or figure out how latex2html references it. How
pdflatex figures it out is a mystery. tth blows up on me, so it may work
fine; I don't know.

My novel goes up tomorrow, worldwide (love the net), at:

latex paragraph export

1999-12-06 Thread John Wetterau

Lyx 1.1.3 is producing great PS output with indented paragraphs and no
line skip between them. Pdflatex produces the same output in PDF format
(indented paragraphs with no line skip). 
Latex2html, however, takes the same .tex file that was used by pdflatex
and produces html code with no paragraph indents and with a line skip
between each paragraph.
Have been through the latex2html docs and mail list archives and can
find no switch or way to control this. The .tex file also has no indents
and line skips, so latex2html seems to be converting it exactly. Yet
pdflatex takes the same input and produces indented PDF code. How does
it know to do this, while latex2html doesn't? 
Any ideas? There must be a simple answer, but after a day of screwing
around I've been unable to find it.
Thanks,
John

dvips scalable fonts

1999-05-24 Thread John Wetterau

Nimrod,
I searched on GhostScript in AltaVista and came up with:
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/aladdin/get550.html
The rpm is:
ghostscript-5.50-2.i386.rpm
I installed with the upgrade parameter:
rpm -Uvh ./ghostscript-5.50-2.i386.rpm
as I had RedHat 5.2 with ghostscript 4.03 already installed. 
Reuben Thomas steered me in the right direction. Many thanks.

dvips Type 1 font output

1999-05-22 Thread John Wetterau

Hi, plowing along trying to get pdf files of a reasonable size. So far I have
been unable to force dvips to use Type 1 scalable fonts which, reportedly,
allow ps2pdf to produce small pdf files (rather than 10X the size of the ps
file which I get using dvips in the normal configuration). I have the Adobe
paper by Kevin Whitehouse on creating quality Adobe pdf files from TeX with
DVIPS, but the specifics elude me. How do you create a fontmap that lists all
the fonts that DVIPS should not use as bitmapped? Where does one find the
equivalent font names that should be substituted? My document (book) is plain
vanilla Times Roman, no figures, nothing fancy. I found all sorts of font map
files, and experimented with "p +fontname.map" in a .dvipsrc file located in my
home directory, but I could detect no change in the output from dvips (once
converted with ps2pdf and displayed with Acrobat 3.0). 
Probably the solution is simpler than I think. Has anyone succeeded in forcing
dvips to use Type 1 scalable fonts? I have RedHat 5.2 and LyX 1.01. 
I have pStill downloaded but have not compiled and tried it yet, as I'm
assuming that it would not be any better than ps2pdf with dvips output that
uses bitmapped fonts. The ability to distribute small pdf files would seem to
be useful to many. Maybe we can document this procedure in one place.
Greets,
John

All, problem disappeared when I followed Reuben's advice to get GhostScript

GhostScript 4.03 perfectly. ps2pdf in the new version seems to substitute
scalable fonts for the bitmapped.
