@PauloCereda It fills vim users' screen with ~. Oh, wait, that's already done by vim.

@PauloCereda -- thank you for the very nice note. i shall reply tomorrow, when i'm in front of a "big" screen and a real keyboard.

anyone here knows about SVG? For some reason tex4ht generated math (in SVG) no longer displays in firefox or Chrom. i.e. I get blank screen. I have no idea why. I open the SVG file (which should display math on the screen) and look at it in editor, but I do not know what is wrong and why browser do not display it. Something is seriously wrong. I just did full update from TL before this.
This is typical header of one svg file
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<!-- This file was generated by dvisvgm 1.15.1 -->
<svg height='44.7157pt' version='1.1' viewBox='72.8715 298.8 128.454 44.7157' width='128.454pt' xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg' xmlns:xlink='http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink'>
<defs>
All my pages now show blank space where Math is supposed to be there!
 
@Nasser Do you have Inkscape? Try opening the .svg file with it.
 
@michal.h21 if you are around, can I please ask you on this.
@PauloCereda yes. I'll try now
I also cleared browser cache, etc.. and still I get empty space everywhere where math is supposed to show.
inkspace shows empty box! Here it is
 
@Nasser: ^^ there's a validator here with one version of the SVG schema. You could try validating your file against it.
 
@PauloCereda ok, will try the validator now. This is big problem.
This is what I get from validator, for one typical svg math image:
Info: The Content-Type was image/svg+xml. Using the XML parser (not resolving external entities).

Info: Using the preset for SVG 1.1 + URL + XHTML + MathML 3.0 based on the root namespace.

The document validates according to the specified schema(s).
 
@Nasser Is there anything in that image? Did you try selecting the "blank" area?
 
1:24 AM
@PauloCereda these are all math equations, generated by tex4ht. I clicked on the displayed area in inkscape, but nothing shows, it is just blank. Here is one SVG file. I put it in this folder at my site 12000.org/tmp/063016
called KE404x.svg
I think something in the latest TL update I just did broke something. I rebuild the file again and still all the math shows blank
 
Interesting. If I import the file into Inkscape, I get the correct output.
 
The SVG file has stuff in it, but the problem is that nothing gets dispayed on my browser.
hummm... I do not understand. Why I get blank on my system? Here is screen shot on firefox
All the empty spaces supposed to display math. I closed the browser and cleared cache. I do not understand what the problem is. Let me reboot the PC. I'll be back in 10 mins after rbooting.
 
1:48 AM
Could someone please look at my page here 12000.org/my_notes/mma_matlab_control/KERNEL/KEse7.htm and see if the math shows up for them? On my end, math do not show up. I just build the above with tex4ht
I tried firefox and Chrome. I rebooted and still math do not show up. Something is wrong and trying to find what.
 
2:44 AM
Would anyone be able to help with a font embedding issue? I ran ghostscript over a document created in XeLaTeX and there are very subtle kerning differences between the document.

question on how to align things in table in indesign: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/74114/… the answer is to use TABs. They should switch to Latex :)
 
 
1 hour later…
6:29 AM
@Nasser I can see the math. Anyway, nothing changed on tex4ht side, it is only possible that dvisvgm got update and it generates different output than it used to.
 
@Nasser works for me (firefox)
 
ebo
7:04 AM
hey! today is a great day! it's duck giveaway day (-:
 
@michal.h21 you might be looking at updated page,. I send email to tex4ht of what happened. But here is the page that shows no math (renamed it) 12000.org/my_notes/mma_matlab_control/KERNEL_no_math/KEse7.htm
@michal.h21 do you see math on it? I see no math. As I said in email, I did not have % at the end of the line I copied. I do not know if has anything to do with it.
 
@Nasser No math here. (Firefox or Opera/Chrome/Chromium/Vivaldi)
 
@DavidCarlisle thanks for checking.
@TorbjørnT. yes! No math on my end also. But the corrected version now shows math. Here it is 12000.org/my_notes/mma_matlab_control/KERNEL/KEse7.htm I think the problem was me. I edited latex.4ht and did not put % at end of the line that Michal showed in his answer.
from now on, I will put % at the end of EACH latex line I write. Each line.
Is there a package which adds % at the end of each line automatically?
 
@Nasser Sounds like a bad plan.
 
Can I turn of just tz ligature (but keep st, etc., ligatures) when using Linux Libertine O?
 
7:21 AM
@wilx If I've understood correctly, I think the selnolig package can do that. Requires LuaTeX though.
(Note that it is now on CTAN, and in TeX Live/MikTeX, so there is no need to go to GitHub.)
 
7:39 AM
@Nasser ah, there is no math, but the SVG files are there, and I can't see anything suspicious in their source code
 
@michal.h21 yes, that is the problem. I had no idea why that happened. But now it seems OK after I used your official latex.4ht from source control. Only difference I could see is I missed % at end of line., but may be you had something more added to latex.4ht. Very strange
 
@Nasser that would be a bad idea
 
sometimes Latex feels to me like using MS Word, when I have to worry about spaces and adding % like this.
main reason I liked Latex, is that I do not have to worry about these things.
 
@Nasser this is really strange, this should work only inside code listings, I see no reason why it should cause problems with math. or how it could cause problem in the DVI conversion.
 
@Nasser worrying about % at the end of the line is the same as worrying aboutspacesbetweenwords if y o u m is s them out or add e x t r a thin gs go w r ong
@Nasser the svg issue seems unlikely to be related to % at end of line since your output worked fine when Michal and I tested it. More likely to be a local issue with your graphics driver not rendering svg for some reason.
 
7:50 AM
I really have no idea why math do not show up. So that is why I kept the old page online for testing. May be there is a problem somewhere else. I do not know.
 
@egreg thanks to your use of comic sans I got a gold badge, thanks!
 
@michal.h21 I can reproduce this problem very easily. I just have to switch back to latex.4ht which has no % at the end of line. The one I edited by hand. Now I am using latex.4ht from source control and I see the math ok.
There might be conflict with other packages. I am using a very large document with many packages added. On a small file, this might not show up.
 
So, I have downloaded some random font (Bariol) and used it with Xelatex on my Wizardry 7 FAQ. However, all bold parts come out as regular.
I am guessing, there is some sort of TeX related part that is missing, am I right?
 
@wilx does it have a bold font?
 
@DavidCarlisle Hnnnmmm, there are only two files named Bariol_Regular.otf and Bariol_Regular_Italic.otf.
