[NTG-context] Footnote in section: Compilation stops on TUO file

I don't understand this error:

It seems to be caused by this line, i.e. by the footnote:

\section{Bildungs- und Erziehungsauftrag\footnote{H. P., Humanist  
Road to European Citizenship, Zitate aus Verfassungen, 15.\,12.\,2007}}

And in the TUO file there's:

[NTG-context] several details (maybe bugs)

2008-04-05 Thread Henning Hraban Ramm
While typesetting some proceedings, I stumpled upon the following  
issues:

(1)
\setupheads seems to do nothing - I must set every option for every  
head separately.
AFAIR this is broken forever, at least it was the same in 2000.

(2)
\setuphead[chapter][header=none]
should switch off the header only on that page where the chapter  
starts, shouldn't it? (It disables headers completely.)
Or how else would I achieve that?

(3)
\startitemize[n]
Numbered itemizations suddenly(?) start with 0 - as this may be  
suitable for programmers, but it's, ehm, a bit unusual in every other  
context.
Hm, it works in the garden.

(4)
Is it possible to include footnotes in tables in the normal footnote  
numbering and placement?
(At the moment I use localfootnotes to enable footnotes in tables at  
all, but that's unsatisfying.)

(5)
Is it possible to disable hyphenation in titles?

[NTG-context] Streams in two columns

2008-04-05 Thread Henning Hraban Ramm
I'm trying to typeset English and German texts in two columns.
With the following example every bilingual section goes on a new  
page. How can I avoid that?
(Using only columns instead of columnsets I get single-section  
pages with alternating languages.)

%% setup

\definecolumnset[twocol][n=2]
\setuphead[chapter][page=no, number=no, align=right]

\usemodule[streams]
% example from the streams module
% only enhanced by columnset
\def\StartCouple{\page\startcolumnset[twocol]\SwitchToNormal}
\def\StopCouple {\SwitchToNormal \SynchronizeLeftAndRight  
\FlushLeftAndRight\stopcolumnset}
\def\Original   {\SwitchToNormal\SynchronizeLeftAndRight\SwitchToLeft}
\def\Translation{\SwitchToRight}

%% text snippet

\StartCouple
\Original\de
\chapter{Ein säkulares Europa -- der Weg zur europäischen  
Staatsbürgerlichkeit}

\Translation\en
\chapter{A Secular Europe -- the Road to European Citizenship}

\Original\de
Zum 50. Jahrestag der Unterzeichnung der Römischen Verträge der  
Europäischen Union hat die European Humanist Federation am 25. März  
2007 die Brüsseler Erklärung veröffentlicht. Hierin wird nochmals

Traditionen beruht, und seine Bürger der Geschichtsklitterung vom  
christlichen Abendland entgegenwirken müssen.

That is understandable. ConTeXt now allows

\setupitemize[n,reverse]

to set up numbers in the reverse order. This also means that ConTeXt needs 
to run two times to get the numbering right.

[NTG-context] mpost update in minimal windows

2008-04-05 Thread Wolfgang Werners-Lucchini
Hallo,

I tried to update my metapost executable in the Windows ConTeXt 
minimal.

In the bin dir I found both

mpost.exe (Version 1.000-rc1)

and a 

mpost.dll

In the archive 'metapost-1.002-windows.zip'
there is 

mpost.exe (Version 1.002 (Web2C 7.5.5))

and no dll

So I downloaded 'mplib-alpha-0.20-win32.zip'
but there is an other exe

newpost.exe (Version 1.002 (Cweb version 0.20))

and no dll

So I wonder where I can find the matching dll and which exe above is 
the right one.

There is an other strange thing:

In the aktuell 'cont-win.zip' is a 'texmfstart.exe' dated 2007-08-07 
with about 700 KB.
But the 'texmfstart.exe' in my bin dir, which is installed 7 or 8 
months ago ist dated 2007-08-08 and much bigger (~900KB).

The next thing I wanted to do ist to update LuaTeX.

Ohjeohje?!

HI,

I had similar trouble in my rather big document.
It seemed to appear randomly. Sometimes it disappeared when I changed fonts or 
added some blank lines before problematic part.

Finally I found that all my problems disappear when I avoid using these tables 
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Table
replacing them by http://wiki.contextgarden.net/TABLE


So ... if you use tables

[NTG-context] first steps with XeTeX

2008-04-05 Thread Henning Hraban Ramm
Since I need to typeset some names with characters outside of ec  
encoding, I'm just checking out XeTeX.

- first threshold:
If you have \setupoutput[pdftex] in cont-sys.tex, it doesn't work. ;-)
(Complains you should use pdftex binaries.)

- second threshold:
Adapt your typescripts. Since I use TeX Gyre anyway, that was no  
problem. (Is there still no complete type-gyr.tex in the  
distribution? I couldn't find it.)

- third threshold (standing there):
XeTeX can't read tagged PDFs. For I typeset proceedings, I must  
include a lot of pages from presentation PDFs. And even if I'd call  
myself a PDF professional, I didn't find a way to delete all tags  
from a PDF.
I could convert everything to EPS or even render the pages in  
Photoshop. But I'd prefer to stay with the PDFs.
Any ideas?


Tomorrow I'll try to use an additional PostScript font - is that even  
possible? Otherwise I must convert it to OpenType.

  - first threshold:
  If you have \setupoutput[pdftex] in cont-sys.tex, it doesn't work. ;-)
  (Complains you should use pdftex binaries.)

Since texmfstart era, pdf is the default output format anyway, so you
really need to try hard to produce dvi. Simply remove
\setupoutput[pdftex] (why do you need it there?)

  - second threshold:
  Adapt your typescripts. Since I use TeX Gyre anyway, that was no
  problem. (Is there still no complete type-gyr.tex in the
  distribution? I couldn't find it.)

TeX Gyre typescripts are loaded by default when you use XeTeX or
LuaTeX. See type-otf.tex

  - third threshold (standing there):
  XeTeX can't read tagged PDFs. For I typeset proceedings, I must
  include a lot of pages from presentation PDFs. And even if I'd call
  myself a PDF professional, I didn't find a way to delete all tags
  from a PDF.

Did you try to convert the PDF to 1.4 (with Adobe Professional for example)?
Else you need to ask on the XeTeX mailing list. (But indeed: why not
trying out LuaTeX?)

  Tomorrow I'll try to use an additional PostScript font - is that even
  possible? Otherwise I must convert it to OpenType.

It is, but which OS and what kind of PostScript font are you using?
Mac type of PostScript fonts doesn't work (or better: it only works
with xdv2pdf, which isn't supported in ConTeXt any more). You can use
the windows type Type1 fonts (i.e. just the normal .pfb files). That
should work on any system, but on Mac you need to reference it by
filename. Font name won't work.
