Re: [NTG-context] infinite paper height

FWIW, Acrobat 6 and earlier had severe problems with document dimensions 
over 200cm, so keep that in mind for compatibility.

 It would be nice if the paper size could be adjusted
 automatically (that's what I meant with infinite) to the length of the
 article, but if that would require too much effort, it would probably
 be easier if I crop the page after processing it with ConTeXt.

Yes. See Hans's reply with \startTEXpage . Very handy command, that. :)

 I also suggest scaling down to approximately 0.7 (70%). It's difficult
 to tell the exact size, but it's nice if the example fits on 800(?)
 pixel wide screen. I have a bad feeling for what the width should be

Mm, I'd have misgivings about scaling down any more: a lot of detail

Hi Paul.

You almost got it. You slightly misunderstood the use of the 
definetypface line...

Paul Hoffman wrote:
 But that's a hack.  So I create a file type-bembo.tex:
 
\starttypescript[bembo][uc]

not quite. try:
\starttypescript[serif][bembo][uc]

  \definetypeface [bembo] [rm] [serif] [Bembo Std] [default] 
 [encoding=uc]
  \definefontsynonym[BemboRegular][Bembo Std:mapping=tex-text]

  \definefontsynonym[BemboItalic] [Bembo

   [encoding=uc]
  \definefontsynonym[BemboCaps]   [Bembo 
 Std:mapping=tex-text;+smcp] [encoding=uc]
\stoptypescript

Okay, you just need to take the definetypeface line out of the above 
definition. We'll rewrite it and re-place it below.

\starttypescript[serif][bembo][name]
  \definefontsynonym[Serif]   [BemboRegular]
  \definefontsynonym[SerifItalic] [BemboItalic]
  \definefontsynonym[SerifBold]   [BemboBold]
  \definefontsynonym[SerifCaps]   [BemboCaps]
  \definefontsynonym[SerifSlanted][BemboItalic]
  \definefontsynonym[SerifBoldItalic] [BemboBold]
  \definefontsynonym[SerifBoldSlanted][BemboBold]
\stoptypescript

These lines look pretty good (although I suspect you could be defining 
Bold Italic as well).

You want a third typescript that creates the typeface definition. It's 
this thing that calls the other two:

\starttypescript[bembo][uc]
  \definetypeface [bembo] [rm] [serif] [bembo] [default]  [encoding=uc]
\stoptypescript

 And a test file in the same directory as the typescript file:
 
\usetypescriptfile[type-bembo]
\usetypescript[bembo][uc]
\setupbodyfont[bembo,11pt]
\starttext
Bembo {\bf Bembo} {\it Bembo} {\sc Bembo} Bembo.
\stoptext
 
 Now I get small caps all right, but everything's in Computer Modern.  
 :-(  What am I doing wrong?

You're just missing some of the magic in the definetypeface line. To 
show the arbitrariness of some of the names, you can change the last 
definition and how you call it:

\starttypescript[OpenTypeBembo]
  \definetypeface [BooBoo] [rm] [serif] [bembo] [default]  [encoding=uc]
\stoptypescript


   \usetypescriptfile[type-bembo]
   \usetypescript[OpenTypeBembo]
   \setupbodyfont[BooBoo,11pt]

And when you call the BooBoo typeface, it knows that definition and 
calls the following definitions when using the \rm family:

\starttypescript[serif][bembo]  [uc]
\starttypescript[serif][bembo]  [name]
\starttypescript[serif][default][size]

(and some other, special definitions that 98% of the time you don't need 
to worry about.)

Does that work?

 euler:ec

Makes sense. I'll look at the new definitions you just sent.

On the user side, what do you imagine it would look like:
\definetypeface [e] [mm] [math] [euler] [euler] [encoding=ec]

\definetypeface [e] [mm] [math] [euler] [euler] [encoding=euler:ec]

?

 otherwise we end up with all other math encodings being messed up 

Yes, and that's the last thing I'd want to happen because of euler support.

Yup. You seem to be the first to have noticed (or complained), as well.

 This is how eulervm.sty defines these characters for T1 encoding.

That's the key, though, it apparently pulls in the text accents as well, 
and changes the math definitions depending on the text encoding. That 
seems rather opposite to how ConTeXt *should* work.

 I do not know what is the equivalent of 'operators' family in context. 
 Any idea how to pull them out of the text fonts?

Let's open this up to Hans and Taco: any idea? Much of the finer points 
of \definemathsymbol et al are voodoo to me.

The fourth/sixth arguments of \definemathsymbol insist on a (hex) number 
to be in that slot. Anything else (like \textmacron) is a no-go.

So right now, Euler is limited by the math mechanisms/the encoding of 
the font. I can imagine two solutions of differing hack-ish natures:

1) Allow further expansion in \definemathsymbol:
  \definemathsymbol [breve] [accent] [tf] [\textbreve]

2) Do a hack following LaTeX's imperfect lead:
  \definemathsymbol [breve] [accent] [tf] [15] % for texnansi
   % or
  \definemathsymbol [breve] [accent] [tf] [08] % for ec
  etc.

Advice?

 I tested the same file using ConTeXt(Mac Os Roman encoding), and have no

 Should I set something in XeTeX-ConTeXt?

Dalyoung,

This is much more a ConTeXt issue than a XeTeX issue. I *think* it comes 
up with XeConTeXt because the CJK font has (relatively) wider roman 
characters than with roman fonts.

Anyway, here are two different approaches. You can either correct it per 
item group (making it broad or a multiple thereof), or across all 
itemizes (insert whatever width that makes you happy).

\starttext

\startitemize[n,2*broad]
\dorecurse{13}{\item item }
\stopitemize

% or:
\setupitemize[width=2.5em]
\startitemize[n]
\dorecurse{13}{\item item }

Hope that helps!

That's not the most obvious choice of command name, but it works, eh?. 
To protect yourself, you could add more logical markup and say 
something like this in your environment:

\let\NewPar\indentation

and then mark all paragraphs to be indented with that \NewPar.

Re: [NTG-context] Force an indent

archive:]

 I do not want to do this:

 Because that has the effect that paragraphs following formulae are

 source like this ...

(not always, in the auto case)

 \setupwhitespace[medium]
 
 \setupindenting[medium,yes]
 
 \starttext
 
 Again, we choose to multiply the fours, then the result by the square  
 root of three. That is,
 
 \placeformula[-]
 \startformula
4(4\sqrt3)
=16\sqrt3.
 \stopformula
 
 By induction, we can argue that that the associative and commutative  
 properties will allows us to group and arrange the product of more  
 than three numbers in any order that we please.
 
 \stoptext

Although it doesn't really apply to you, because of the spaced-out 
nature of your source files, this will help someone out. If you have 
indentnext=auto set for formulae (or verbatim or itemize), then you have 
no indent if there's no blank line between the formula and the text. If 
there is a blank line, then there's a normal indent.

In the example, watch what happens after the two \stopformula s:

\setupindenting[medium,yes]
\setupformulas[indentnext=auto]
\starttext

\input ward
You will find that

\startformula
2+2=5
\stopformula % no blank line
for very large values of two.
\input dawkins
However, traditionalists maintain that

\startformula
2+2=4
\stopformula % extra blank line

Moving on, we find...
\input tufte

\stoptext

(pardon the extra test text. The bits that I wrote didn't make the 
example clear enough when typeset.)

 ... and not have the next paragraph after the formula. That is the  
 default. That is what I want. However, on occasion, sometimes I do  
 want to indent the next paragraph after a formula. My question is,  
 how to override the default behavior on occasion. That is, every  
 rare once in a while, how do I indent a paragraph after a formula.

 [ok]

 How can I get that paragraph after the placeformula to indent?
\setupindenting[medium,yes]
\setupformulas[indentnext=yes]
%\setupfloats[indentnext=yes] % maybe desired as well?

 I just discovered that only this

\setupindenting[medium,always]

 doesn't work either, and that is a bit counterintuitive.

Hello All,

I'm again hit by the disapperance of the Adoboe default fonts. When I
create a PDF document, I get the Nimbus (urw) fonts, instead of the
Adobe.


If you do _not_ have the Adobe binary fonts, then I am afraid you
have to learn to live with the URW versions. These days, a
non-embedded Helvetica seems to imply the use of Adobe Sans MM,
and I've had a production PDF rejected by a printing house because
of that.


I would second what Taco says: not embedding is just asking for trouble 
from third parties. However, if you're independent or otherwise control 
everybody's viewer, try this:


\usetypescript[adobekb][8r]
\loadmapfile[8r-base-ndl]
\usetypescript[postscript][8r]% 'pos' is deprecated
\setupbodyfont[postscript,ss,11pt]
\starttext
\showbodyfont
\subject{Test}
Of correct font.
\stoptext


updmap is irrelevant, ConTeXt comes with its own map files.


And here's one that ConTeXt can use (after Berend gives a thorough test 
and some feedback).


[Incidentally, there is one NimbusRoman that gets embedded: that's the 
slanted version, which seems unavoidable.]

It works here: The attached new mapfile (in my original post) lived in a 
ConTeXt-accessible path (in this case, just the testfile's directory), 
and contained entries directly cut-and-paste from my pdftex_ndl14.map.

Some commentary on the testfile:

%D Berry doesn't work here because it's not available with 8r:
\usetypescript[adobekb][8r]
%D The adobekb typescript loads 8r-base, so we have to
%D overwrite the font embedding entries by loading this after:
\loadmapfile[8r-base-ndl]
%D The current way of triggering the 'pos' combination:
\usetypescript[postscript][8r]% 'pos' is deprecated
\setupbodyfont[postscript,ss,11pt]
\starttext
%D Since this triggers the slanted variant, there will be *one*
%D NimbusRoman font embedded. The rest is left up to the viewer:
\showbodyfont
\subject{Test}
Of correct font.

 Hi,
 
 using ConTeXt with XeTeX seems to be an nice option for us MacOSX users.
 But I get always confused with the names for these rich features like 
 Style Option, Ligatures, Variants.
 
 I mean: how do I know how many variants and style options a font has and 
 how they and their ligatures etc. want to be called?
 In plain ConTeXt (for the 255 characters) we can use \showfont[...] and 
 \showcharacters in order to know how to call the specific 
 characters/glyphs. But what about OpenType?

\showfont is limited to unicode's 0-255 slots, but it's functional:
  \showfont[Book Antiqua]

 Peeking at the LaTeX side of XeTeX, I saw that they have created a 
 packages called fontspec which seems to give better access to all (?) if 
 these options.
 
 What about us? Is there help also for XeConTeXt?

I find that the lcdf typetools are a tremendous help:
  otfinfo -f ~/Library/Fonts/WarnockPro-Regular.otf

aaltAccess All Alternates

and I can test the features with:
  \showfont[Warnock Pro: +smcp]

Fontspec is an impressive piece of work, but I think it's driven much 
more by the 'possible' than by requirements. My time constraints (i.e., 
daughter) won't let me do that sort of exploratory coding anymore. I can 
try and help out with concrete requests, though.

[I feel like a lot of the stuff I've done in this space has been 
released into a vacuum, and that few people are actually making stuff

 el-* files makes me wonder: is there time to do the next step and
 finish the second encoding with symbols?


 indeed
 Oop. Sorry, I hadn't been watching that.
 I've suggested texnansi as a starting point, at least within ConTeXt.
 What symbols do people want that *aren't* within texnansi?
 
 1. Would Caron  similar uppercase accents make sense? I doubt that
 many accents are needed in addition to what is already present in the
 other encoding anyway, but something like that could be used if there
 is no Ccaron present in the font for example:
 
 \definecharacter Ccaron {\buildtextaccent\textCaron C}
 instead of
 \definecharacter Ccaron {\buildtextaccent\textcaron C}
 
 In well-designed fonts (including all Polish fonts such as lm,
 antykwa, iwona, ...) the lowercase and the uppercase variant of the
 accent differ. (Try to write \Scaron\Ccaron in texnansi encoding for
 example to see the difference).

Good point... except that there are *no* accents available in eurolett, 
anyway. It *should* have all of the accented uppercase characters you 
need (within roman ;). The whole theory is to do away with building text 
accents. But what does Hans want? Should lc and uc accents be available 
to create `weird' combinations?

 Of course some care has to be taken, so that it will also work for
 fonts without those additional accents for uppercase characters (using
 \iffontchar perhaps?).

Indeed. I do want to avoid a strong dependency on the specific glyphs 
that appear in the font. That moves the encoding mess to *within* 
ConTeXt, which is not pretty, either.

 2. perhaps some currency symbols missing in texnansi
 I would suggest to add Euro, but with some special care of course.
 Perhaps some users still prefer to use the regular (geometrical)
 symbol rather than the one taken from I-forgot-which-font (the default
 behaviour when \texteuro is used).
 
 Any other currency on this list worth supporting?
 http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U20A0.pdf
 Perhaps dong, lira, Won ...

sounds like ts1-like stuff.

 3. Perhaps a short glimpse into:
 http://source.contextgarden.net/ts1-lm.enc
 http://www.cstug.cz/aktivity/2005/lm-at11e.pdf
 http://www.janusz.nowacki.strefa.pl/pliki/AntykwaTorunska-doc-en-2_03.pdf
 if you notice anything worth supporting.
 
 married might be useful for geneaology, I guess that the leaf is
 there for the same purpose. No idea why anyone would want to use the
 musical note (ugly in lm and probably hardly present in any other
 font).

They're there because of ts1, which is *mostly* unhelpful here. I would 
have thought glyph coverage from places like Adobe, Storm, and Emigre 
(for example) might be a better guide.

 4. numero sign, ordfeminine, ordmasculine, copyleft ;), I don't know

well, some of those are in standard practice, at least. ;)

 if anybody needs fractions, permyriad, ... one/two/...superior
 (present in some regimes) are pretty pointless in TeX where you can
 use \high{} I guess. Perhaps there should be two different glyphs for
 tilde and asciitilde (not sure about the last one.)

Yeah, I'm trying to be driven by *requirements* instead of technical 
capability (i.e., what already exists in a family of fairly peculiar 
fonts). I know those are around, but I don't hear a lot of calls for 
them since ConTeXt moved to EC as a default encoding.

 This works (but is unwieldy if you have lots of floats):
 
 \placefigure%
{\setupalign[hz,hanging]
 \input tufte }
{\framed[width=\textwidth]{bla}}

With the original poster's code, the 'hz' part is superfluous (with

Yes, and it's what variants were intended to address, to stack font

sometimes exists in more than regular shapes. Small Caps appear in bold

Yes. Sorry I wasn't clear on that.
It's just that ttf2tfm is the tool that does a good job at extracting 
those entries when other tools fail.

What would be needed to get UTF-8 input running with Chinese?


If you use vim to edit your tex file, maybe you can try set

As far as I know, GBK is compatible with unicode.


No, that does not work - that is the reason I started this mail thread.
You get the wrong characters and you may get some TeX errors.
(And that is the reason Lutz wrote a UTF-8 to GBK converted.)


Hmm, I suspect that some remix between my old (deprecated) Libertine in 
ConTeXt recipe and the ttf2tfm automatic unicode splitting would have 
some positive effects.


(I would discourage using that recipe for alphabetic (incl Roman) 
Unicode fonts because it blows away any kerning that would happen 
between unicode blocks. Is there less kerning among CJK fonts? I would 
expect so.)


Thinking aloud, you'd probably want to include some language-switching 
commands, to mediate between the calling of unicode fonts for un-named 
CJK glyphs (just raw conversion from Unicode to font switch + glyph 
number) to named roman (and other alphabetic) glyphs (conversion from 
UTF-8 to named glyphs to font+glyph, which retains kerning where it can).


I know it's sketchy and vague, but have a look inside font-uni. It's not 
the most complicated file in the distro.

Getting texfont to do batch installs on gwTeX (was Re: [NTG-context] Palatino)

2005-11-23 Thread Adam Lindsay
David,

Sorry I've been quiet on this front. I've been busy with other, non-
ConTeXt things for a while, and am in the process of re-engaging with it.

In order to run type-tmf.dat, you need a way around the hard-coded --
rootlist=TEXMFMAIN that's in the .dat file. gwTeX keeps the fonts we
need in what it calls the TEXMFTE directory. My brutish workaround is as
follows:

1) Go to some temp directory.
2) copy type-tmf into that directory:
 cp /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/context/data/type-tmf.dat .
3) munge type-tmf to something more gwTeX friendly:
 sed s/TEXMFMAIN/TEXMFTE/ type-tmf.dat  type-tmf-gw.dat
(literally: replace every occurrence of TEXMFMAIN with TEXMFTE and put
it in type-tmf-gw.dat)
4) run texfont (prepend with sudo if you have errors):
 texfont type-tmf-gw.dat
5) run it again, if you want the ec encoding:
 texfont --en=ec type-tmf-gw.dat
6) process one or two test files to see if it really worked:
 texexec --once --mode=compact texnansi-urw-bookman.tex

I hope that works for you. 
Gerben, Hans, can you think of a way to make this workaround unnecessary?

Hans,

When I try:

011-101:/usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/context/data davidarnold$  
sudo texfont --encoding=texnansi -batch type-tmf.dat

I get a slew of messages similar to this last one:

TeXFont 2.2.1 - ConTeXt / PRAGMA ADE 2000-2004

   slant factor : 0.167
  checking root : TEXMFMAIN
 processing aborted : unknown subpath ../fonts/afm/urw/ncntrsbk

 --help : show some more info

Some extra information:

texexec --verbose reports:

applications will use : /usr/local/teTeX/texmf.cnf

This last file is attached.

 for that one you need to run

 texfont --encoding=texnansi --batch type-tmf.dat

 (since you are familiar with texnansi  although better than ec,  
 this encoding was never really supported in distributions, only by  
 mouh, which is why you need to generate metrics yourself)

 This one worked.

 Two questions:

 1. I don't know why one worked and the other didn't. What files  
 could I look at in my tex tree that would give a hint as to which  
 to use?

 2. How can I make the first one work?

 use texfont (or take cont-fnt from the website)

Re: [NTG-context] mfonts.tex from manuals

2005-11-23 Thread Adam Lindsay

I tried to run texfont demofont.dat, but failed.
First off, Hans, am I missing a runtools.rb? I can't find it. 

Secondly, I think the current demofont.dat has a bug because it triggers
an obscure texfont filtering feature. I changed the comments at the head
of the file to work around it:

# we assume that demofont.afm and demofont.pfb are present
# run with:
# texfont demofont.dat 

# test test
 
--ve=test --co=test --ma --indemofont
--ve=test --co=test --ma --in --sla=.167 demofont
--ve=test --co=test --ma --in --ext=1.50 demofont
--ve=test --co=test --ma --in --cap=.750 demofont
--ve=test --co=test --ma --in --nol  demofont


...and by running:
 texfont --ve=test --co=test --ma --in demofont.dat 
...I do indeed get the modified Iwona fonts.

more below...

Taco Hoekwater said this at Wed, 23 Nov 2005 08:27:14 +0100:

   \usetypescript[adobekb][8r,ec]
   \usetypescriptfile [type-buy]
   \usetypescriptfile [typeface]
   \environment ../allkind/mcommon.tex

That fixed the problem with Palatino (It now says I have
missing LucidaBright (texnansi-lbXXX) fonts, but I believe
that is correct because it is from an example, and at least
one hurdle is taken).

Okay, another couple hacks to cross further hurdles:

The top of my mfonts.tex now looks like:

\preloadtypescripts   % I wanted to speed things up a bit!
\startnotmode[atpragma]
\startMPenvironment[global]
  % Current bug in distribution
 \definefontsynonym [LMSans-Italic] [LMSans-Oblique]
 \definefontsynonym [LMSans-BoldItalic] [LMSans-BoldOblique]
  % lucida gets called all over the place
 \definetypescriptsynonym [lucida] [palatino]
 \usetypescript[adobekb][8r,ec]
\stopMPenvironment
\stopnotmode

\usetypescriptfile [type-buy]
\usetypescriptfile [typeface]

\environment ../allkind/mcommon.tex

... That much ought to fix the main body (though with the synonyms and
substitutions, the fonts it mentions in the text are not always going to
match the actual fonts used now!)

Go down a little bit, and you'll see the title page font set:

\startnotmode[atpragma]

  \startMPenvironment[global]
\usetypescript[handwriting,map][lucida][texnansi]
\definefontsynonym[TitlePage-Bold][LucidaHandwriting-Italic]
%usetypescript[calligraphy,map][chancery][texnansi]
%definefontsynonym[TitlePage-Bold][Chancery]
% ...

comment out the lucida lines, and uncomment the chancery lines, and you
should be in business for a full run!

er, I hope.
Good luck?

 batch line : --en=texnansi --ve=public --co=antp --

It's weird. Looking through the rest of David's log, it replaced some of
them, but not all. I never claimed to be a sed wizard. To David, I'd say
open in a text editor and do a global find/replace.

Anyway, back to an earlier suggestion by Hans, --ro=TEXMFMAIN,TEXMFTE
seems to work for me, except in the case of Adobe Utopia. In that case,
--ro=TEXMFMAIN,TEXMFGW should work. Actually, I see the Utopia lines
replicated for tl2003+. Should it not be:
 --ro=TEXMFMAIN,TEXMFGW,TEXMFEXTRA   ?

[That said, I'm getting perplexing results on a texfont --en=ec type-
tmf.dat install: there's an insistence on creating bitmaps for these fonts!]

Presuming you're in a directory where you want the stuff (and svn is in

 svn checkout svn://ctx.pragma-ade.nl/manuals

(the first time: it creates a manuals subdirectory and populates it
with further subdirectories from the server. It also makes a hidden

 svn update

Taco Hoekwater said this at Fri, 11 Nov 2005 16:36:25 +0100:


Hello all,

I am pleased to announce that the new ConTeXt release from Hans Hagen
can be downloaded as of now from the Pragma ADE website or one of its
mirrors.

   http://www.pragma-ade.com/context/current/cont-tmf.zip
   http://www.pragma-ade.com/context/current/cont-tmf.zip
   http://mirror.contextgarden.net/context/current/cont-tmf.zip

If you have not updated your Latin Modern fonts in the past
month, then you will need to fetch the latest redistribution
of the LM fonts as well:

   http://www.pragma-ade.com/context/current/cont-lmt.zip
   http://www.pragma-ade.com/context/current/cont-lmt.zip
   http://mirror.contextgarden.net/context/current/cont-lmt.zip

In the course of the following days, both files will also become
available from the regular CTAN nodes.

New features compared to the 2005.10.27 version:

   * Additional dvips map files for Latin Modern
   * context-base.map removed
   * support for Waldi's Symbols added
   * support for intercolumn spaces in natural tables
   * support for extension of definitions inside assignments

Bugs fixed since the 2005.10.27:

   * mptopdf sometimes had trouble starting the pdfetex executable
   * sometimes externalimage-s in metafun disappeared
   * EC encoded text in math mode should now be ok (\ccaron c.s.)
   * lots of small register (index) fixes to newtexutil
   * a bug in \type that prevented the compilation of the pdftex manual.
   * some other (minor) bugs

The current release has version 2005.11.11. As usual, there is a
page with much more detailed release notes available on the Wiki,
see: http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Context_2005.11.11


Happy TeXing,

I don't know what that means, but no, this context release won't be on

I should have been more precise. I've heard of halo releases being the
last set of bug fixes for a given software series (such as MacOSX 10.3.9
or whatever was the final kernel in the Linux 2.2.n series).

TL'05.  That's frozen, and Manfred is making the golden masters for
final testing and production now.  From what Hans and Taco have told me,
the post-TL context releases aren't critical, i.e., TL should be ok.  If
that's not the case, I don't want to know :).  (Ok, not really, please
inform ASAP if that's so :)

Oh. I haven't been following closely, but I did notice that Taco
referred to the previous (2005.11.09) version as being a bit of a
problem child.

If I invoke texexec from terminal, default is located in sw/bin. It's

Danger! Danger!
(Sorry, that's a bit cruel and extreme.)
However, it seems that you, once upon a time, installed the Fink package
system, and tried to get TeX along with it. Fink is notoriously greedy
in the way it sets the path, and can live a long time on your system
after you have forgotten it exists.

If you don't use any fink-installed packages, I suggest completely
obliterating the /sw tree. If you can't get away with that, I suggest
going through and deleting all tex-related binaries from the /sw/bin
tree or making sure /sw/bin is inserted into your $PATH last, and not first.

(for those watching from the sidelines, Fink http://
fink.sourceforge.net/  is a dpkg system for the Mac, but I have long
disapproved of the way it goes about its business on people's systems)

Hi. I'm just catching up with this issue.
Mojca is giving you the right information. I've installed hfbright on my

only. The easiest way to fix this for you is to return to the
typescripts and make sure they say:
  [encoding=default] instead of
  [encoding=ec]

As you are probably aware, there are issues with hyphenation and the OT1
encoding. However, the TFMs and free Type 1 glyphs for this font simply
are not around.

May I suggest looking at the new Latin Modern light sans fonts for text,
and using hfbright for mathematics only?

in the package hfbright there are pfb included (I think this are the
type 1). tfms are also on my system

Yes, on my system, the TFMs are actually from the CMBright package, and
the map file redirects to the HFBright Type1/.pfb files.

I don't know much about hyphenantion, but why are there problems?

There's a little bit of explanation here:
http://wiki.contextgarden.net/Encodings_and_Regimes
...but basically, TeX's hyphenation trickery doesn't know how to deal
with composite characters (when it puts an  atop a u [pardon my 7-bit
rendition]). If a word contains a composite u as a character, it won't
break. If it contains a full ü, TeX can deal with it.


May I suggest looking at the new Latin Modern light sans fonts for text,
and using hfbright for mathematics only?



Propably you are right and I should go the easy way and simply use an
other font. Do you know if there is a ready package for the Latin Modern
light sans?

Um, disregard that. I must have hallucinated that font. It doesn't
exist. Sorry.

did you use texfont to generate the metrics

  texfont --encoding=t5 --batch type-tmf  

in that case there should be a t5-urw-palatino.map file 

otherwise, the t5-base should do the job and you can ignore the message

can you check t5-base.map?  

or, can you check to see if type-dis gets loaded, and that you have:
\usetypescript [berry] [t5]
?

Re: [NTG-context] More problems installing OpenType fonts

2005-09-23 Thread Adam Lindsay
Hi Emil.

I wrote that article and am pretty baffled by the problems you have. (I
just did a test run of the same command, running an identical texfont,
identical otftotfm version) The ConTeXt installation looks fine.
There are two discrepancies that I see here, though:
otftotfm is running updmap in the interim. That shouldn't disturb
things, but it might point to you getting the binary from somewhere
other than gwTeX.

your entire TeX tree is in your local directory, which makes me wonder
how you installed the whole machinery.

I also wonder which version of the Antykwa Torunska fonts you are trying
to convert: they have been updated a few times since the article.

You will have to convert your XML file to become a ConTeXt table, use  
XSLT or some scripting language.
ConTeXt's TABLE format (HTML tables) is very suitable for such.

I'm not sure I understand the CVS or something else part from the
original poster, but XML-style tables can very feasibly be mixed with
other ConTeXt code:

\usemodule[contml]  % load the simple default xml vocab
\autoXMLnamespace [context] % avoid prefixing elements w/ context:
\setupcolors  [state=start] % not necessary, helps with example

\starttext
\section{Some \ConTeXt}

\startXMLdata
table frame=off background=color color=white
tr backgroundcolor=red   tdsome/td tdXML/td /tr
tr backgroundcolor=green tdxx/td tdxx/td /tr
/table
\stopXMLdata

I can also have normal \TeX-like 
\inframed[frame=off,background=color,backgroundcolor=yellow]
{markup}.

\stoptext

Is it possible to fill a table or a document in ConTeXt with content
from a XML file?

You can replace the \startXMLdata-\stopXMLdata block with (in this case)
\processXMLfilegrouped{table.xml} where table.xml holds a table similar
to the above.

1. The best quality can be achieved if you prepare all your stuff in XML 
and then write both a stylesheet for conversion into HTML and a couple 
of ConTeXt definitions to handle formating for output in PDF documents. 
I never did that (I consider it too complex and time consuming), but if 
you're ready to go that way and sacrifice some time, there are some 
people on the list who can help you.

very much agreed here. I'd personally advocate an intermediate XML
format (that matches your document needs), and transforming to Word-
friendly HTML or to a ConTeXt-friendly format.

For a taste of some XML workflows, see:
http://pragma-ade.com/general/manuals/example.pdf

Greetings (first post),

Hi Gavin,

Two things:
Are you running texfont from the directory that contains all the .otf files?

(This doesn't look like the problem here, but) Are you running the
latest ConTeXt? There was a bug in the OpenType support in TeXFont that
was fixed  in the distribution as of a couple months ago.

(sorry for the delay--I'm on the road)

adam


Adam Lindsay's recent article OpenType installation basics for
ConTeXt in The PracTeX Journal
(http://www.tug.org/pracjourn/2005-2/lindsay) is very well written.
Unfortunately, I was unable to perform the first step.

As the article specified, I ran the command:

$ texfont --ma --in --ve=public --co=torunska --lcdf --pre --va=liga,kern

It started off OK, but failed to properly create the map file.
Selected output follows:

   extending map file :
E:/MiKTeX/local/fonts/map/pdftex/context/texnansi-LIGA-KERN-public-
torunska.map

  font identifier : AntykwaTorunska-Bold - text - tfm
 processing files : otf - tfm + enc
otftotfm: './AntykwaTorunska-Bold.otf': No such file or directory
no mapfile from otftotfm : texfont.map

  font identifier : AntykwaTorunska-BoldItalic - text - tfm
 processing files : otf - tfm + enc
otftotfm: './AntykwaTorunska-BoldItalic.otf': No such file or directory
no mapfile from otftotfm : texfont.map

  [and so on for each .otf file]


So, otftotfm is claiming that the files don't exist, but they
absolutely 100% do.  Perhaps it's looking for them somewhere else?

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Regards,
Gavin

I suspect it's in your local specifics. As we don't have access to your

So, barring further analysis of your typescripts, rscale seems to work here...

Well, in testing, I used the locally-defined pcrr8t in the place of the
file you cite, but your example works for me.

I tested (just in case) if it was something to do with the OTF
conversion (highly unlikely), but the following lines added to your
typescripts (calling a locally-installed font) did what was expected:

\loadmapfile[texnansi-LIGA-KERN-adobe-myriad]

\starttypescript [sans] [myriad] [texnansi]
 \definefontsynonym [myriadreg] [texnansi-LIGA-KERN-MyriadPro-SemiCn]

 \definefontsynonym [Sans] [myriadreg]
\stoptypescript

\definetypeface [MyFnt] [ss] [sans] [myriad]
[default][rscale=0.6,encoding=texnansi]

It's ok since I get the correct font, just it isn't rscaled.
THe mechanism seems to work well here however since the euler font is
correctly rscaled.

The information is all I put in the typescript for the tt font.

All I can ask now is: ConTeXt version? How do you call the font in your
text/for testing?

Looks fine so far, but I have only checked the chars I use (mostly

(Although I wouldn't put too much effort posting there, the answer

No, I haven't, mostly for that reason. The discussion will inevitably

OK for Czech chars too.

Thanks. Good to know.

Only tcaron char is not searchable (if in my AR7 search for any letter,
say 'a' I got all accented a variant; if for 't' 'È' is not find), but I
do not know if the problem is in a) AR, b) CMAP, c) encoding (enco in

presented too). But tt is not a big problem.

Hmm, interesting. I get the same results in Apple's PDF viewer. (The
capital letter Tcaron is searchable, though!) There's a fair bit that I
don't understand about CMAP, however. (Also note that this was generated
a few months ago, and that recent CMAP improvements (I think I saw some
corrections go by on the mailing list while on holiday) won't be

 I'd say update to a new version, as a first step. I made a mistake in

 Hans suggestion of changing to lower-case font names probably won't

 So every command with brackets needs to be grouped? Maybe something

I know of nothing else, just brackets. Any bracket, not just as
part of a command, but also in cases like this:

   \setuppublications[left={[}]

Ooh, just remembered: Commas, too. 
\setupitemize[stopper={,}]

and to be sure: every command with brackets sounds like you mean
everywhere... this is just amongst parameters.

So: brackets and commas, used as parameter values, need to have
enclosing braces.

If you think of the braces as quoting the parameter values, you'll
probably be alright.

Sort of. That, I imagine, has more to do with TeX's parser, and the

Isn't is possible when processing with XeTeX to continue using those

*ohhh*
I see. Sorry about the confusion. I thought you were talking about using
converted OpenType fonts, and then using them in their natural state
from XeTeX.

If they're virtual fonts, then the short answer is no. XeTeX doesn't
deal with virtual fonts at all when it is in its compatibility
mode (i.e., tries to use tfms/type1 fonts in the texmf tree). This is
disappointing to me too (having just moved euler support to eulervm
files), but it's fairly understandable in the context of what XeTeX is
trying to achieve.

[NTG-context] Re: re-using ConTeXt typescripts ?

2005-07-11 Thread Adam Lindsay
Hi Steffen,

You're pretty close. It's best not to rewrite your old scripts, rather,
to make a new type-enc style script to replace your existing [serif]
[agaramond][ec] script. This way, when changing engines, it's a simple
step of changing the (default, perhaps?) encoding...

\starttypescript [serif] [agaramond] [uc] % XeTeX and Unicode is a happy
combination
   \definefontsynonym [AGaramond-Regular]
  ['AGaramondPro-Regular:mapping=tex-text;+onum'][encoding=uc] 
   \definefontsynonym [AGaramond-Italic] 
  ['AGaramondPro-Italic:mapping=tex-text;+onum'] [encoding=uc] 
   \definefontsynonym [AGaramond-Bold]   
  ['AGaramondPro-Bold:mapping=tex-text;+onum']   [encoding=uc]
   \definefontsynonym [AGaramond-BoldItalic] 
  ['AGaramondPro-BoldItalic:mapping=tex-text;+onum'] [encoding=uc]
   \definefontsynonym [AGaramond-Semibold]   
  ['AGaramondPro-Semibold:mapping=tex-text;+onum']   [encoding=uc]
   \definefontsynonym [AGaramond-SemiboldItalic] 
  ['AGaramondPro-SemiboldItalic:mapping=tex-text;+onum'] [encoding=uc]
\stoptypescript

So, as you will know from the XeTeX documentation :), the way of naming
a font is enclosed within quotes. The first element is the postscript
font name (otfinfo -p fontname or look in FontBook.app), then
(optionally) a /I, /B, /BI, or /S for within-family selection, any
mapping features, and then other OpenType features.

Here I selected the tex-text mapping (to stay consistent with `` --- ''
ligatures), and the +onum opentype feature (guessing from the name of
your typescripts, you like Oldstyle NUMerals).

If you wanted to go further, you could define an \sc alternative in your
typescripts by inserting it into your other typescripts and turning on
the +smcp feature in AGaramondPro-Regular for the appropriate synonym to
fit above. I leave that as an exercise for the reader...

I've included a quick test below.  When I run it, I get all the fonts
being bold and some Greek symbols are missing after the \bfm command.

Any ideas?

Yes.

That last typescript you list should be:

\starttypescript [bfmath] [fourier] [name]
  \definefontsynonym [MathRomanBold] [Fourier-Math-Letters-Bold]
  \definefontsynonym [MathItalicBold][Fourier-Math-Letters-Italic-Bold]
  \definefontsynonym [MathSymbolBold][Fourier-Math-Symbols]
  \definefontsynonym [MathExtensionBold] [Fourier-Math-Extension]
\stoptypescript

You were redefining the normal math options to be the bold fonts. The
above typescript uses the named MathBlahBold slots, to be called with \bfm.

That's my understanding of it, yes.
Reading more about it yesterday, that does indeed sound non-optimal. 

Can you say what the requirements would be for improving Palatino math
support would be?

(And have you tried my little typescript hack?)

For those trying to follow along:

Young Ryu's pxmath:
* Current ConTeXt choice
+ Complete AMS glyph coverage
- Some spacing bugs
- No longer supported, and deprecated in LaTeX world

Diego Puga's mathpazo:
* LaTeX's preferred choice (of free fonts)
+ heavily tested spacing
- only 'basic' math support

I think some sort of hybrid is possible. Without relying on virtual
fonts, it would be necessary to make a choice between the two blackboard
options.

\usetypescript[adobekb][ec]
\usetypescript[palatino][ec]

\starttext
\showfontstrip

% then call your palatino family:
\usetypescript[adobekb][ec]
\usetypescript[palatino][ec]
\setupbodyfont[palatino]

% and run it thru some tests:
\starttext
\input knuth

\startformula
