[NTG-context] Text overwrites float instead of wrapping around it

2004-08-22 Thread Adam Warner
Hi Hans and all,

The example below demonstrates text completely overwriting a figure
(with Debian sid  TeTeX version 2.0.2b-1).

\starttext
\setupfloats[spacebefore=,spaceafter=]
\reservefigure[height=2cm,width=4cm,frame=on][left]{}

{\bf Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,} consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod
tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam,
quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo
consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse
cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non
proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.
\stoptext

I processed the TeX file using texexec --output=pdftex filename.tex

Regards,
Adam

 Well, I'd love to use aleph - no doubt! But, as I work with MacOS(X) 
 I fear I have to find a solution that will work for pdfetex.
 
 Could someone help me?
 
 Hmm. What's your timeframe?
 I'm working on XeTeX drivers for ConTeXt that should get to a 90%
 solution soonish... the question will then be what weird ConTeXt
 features will you need?
 
 For those not aware, XeTeX is a very interesting eTeX variant that hooks
 into MacOSX's advanced typography. It's Unicode-native, and uses native
 Mac fonts without any TeXFont-y conversion necessary. It supports Apple's
 AAT features as well as OTF features.




As far as I understood I order to typeset text in xetex you have to use basically 
plain TeX-commands.

So, when you say you're working on XeTeX drivers for ConTeXt does that mean that I can 
write normal context code but typeset with XeTeX instead of pdfeTeX?

That would be great. Because my aim is to include polytonic greek quotes in my context 
document, and I setup an ideal context environment for my publications already and 
don't want to start with plain TeX again.

So if my understanding is right, when do you think XeTeX will be available for us 
ConTeXt users?

[NTG-context] texutil malformed UTF-8 character error

2004-08-22 Thread Duncan Hothersall
I'm running the latest beta on top of a TeXlive 2003 install on linux. 
The job I'm currently running needs various tables of contents (and a 
set of bookmarks) but texutil (v. 8.2) seems to be choking on the .tui 
file at the very end of the run with this message:

 TeXUtil 8.2 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 1992-2004

As you can see, as a result of the UTF-8 errors the .tui file isn't 
being successfully read, so I'm getting no register entries and hence no 
tables of contents ( or bookmarks).

I'm in the process of composing a minimal example file, but it's tough 
going and I wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction 
from the information in the error message.

I'd be really grateful! (Impossible deadlines approach...)
Thanks all.

[NTG-context] Re: How to use PostScript font

2004-08-22 Thread Patrick Gundlach
Hi,

 Here is the essence of your problem:
  
  kpathsea: Running mktexmf ec-uplr8a ! I can't find file
  `ec-uplr8a'.  * ...jfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input ec-uplr8a

 You don't have the proper font files in place to use the postscript
 typescripts as they come in the default ConText.  For what it is worth,
 neither did the Slackware 9.1 distribution that I have.


If this is a recent TeX, then it has all necessary files for using
postscript fonts out of the box. Just install psnfss and use the
magic I have written elsewhere in this thread.

[NTG-context] Re: How to use PostScript font (SOLVED)

2004-08-22 Thread Patrick Gundlach
Hello,

 Okay.  Problem solved.  The thing is that I did not ask the texlive 
 distribution to install the extra fonts package.  The palatino fonts were 
 part of the extra fonts. 

Right, I did aks you if you have psnfss installed? Hmm, perhaps I
forgot, because I think that everybody has it installed...

 The former tries to use palatino in all the variations in the following 
 example.  The palatino fonts seems to be missing the serif variant, 

I guess you mean sans serif? Yes, there is no such thing as Palatino
sans serif.

 Even the equation uses some sort of postscript font that I am not
 familiar with.

px I'd guess.

 the \rm, \em, and \sl lines.  Everywhere else the CMR font is used.

Well, not really cmr, but cmss, cmtt and math.

 What causes this behavior?

see type-pre.tex type-exa.tex and type-enc.tex for definitions on
those typescripts. They are just different typescripts.

in cont-new (or cont-sys) you can say:
\def\testbytesequence{}
This 'test' was added in order to determine of tex runs in 8 bit mode. I wonder where the Malformed message comes from. Since when is perl utf-8 by default? 

(i run perl 5.8.0)

can you check your cp8bit.tcx file? it probably isn't 8 bit -) should be: 

0x00   0x00  %
0x01   0x01  %
0x02   0x02  %

[NTG-context] Setting a maximum table/column width

2004-08-22 Thread Flavio Ribeiro
Hi,
The excursion manual describes how to use w(dim) to set a column's 
minimum width. Is there a way to set a column's maximum width so that 
text automatically wraps around?

Alternatively, is there a way to set a table's maximum width so that it 
doesn't get wider than \textwidth? I tried using \SetTableToWidth{} at 
random locations but I either got errors or no improvement whatsoever.

Thanks,
Flavio
