biblatex with BibTeX and XeLaTeX: Unicode compatible?

When I compiled it, the unicode characters were not rendered. Attached is the compiled pdf. The non-ASCII characters are rendered in the main part of the document but not in the reference list.

biblatex with BibTeX and XeLaTeX: Unicode compatible?

Could you provide an MWE where é, ü, and ð are rendered, including the workflow? Alternatively, is there a url that shows LaTeX macros for all alphabets? Below is an MWE where the non-ASCII characters are not rendered in the References. bibtex does not throw an error, and in fact the bbl file contai...

how is /Library/TeX/texbin added to $PATH

I installed the latest MacTex.pkg on a new MacBook Pro running OS X Yosemite (10.10.4). After a reboot, pdflatex and xelatex work fine on the bash shell (Terminal application) command line. This evidently is because the following has been added to my $PATH: /Library/TeX/texbin My question: How is th...

Re: polytonic Greek

Do you mean that the computer on which you work does not have Times New Roman font? I thought it was a standard font. Do you mean that you cannot compile forxelatex.tex on your computer, it throws an error? I have not installed any special font on my computer. I simply typed the Greek unicode charac...

Re: polytonic Greek

Here are two examples, with identical text, which compiled on my Mac OS 10.7.5 under TexLive 2014. Both rendered the English and the polytonic Greek. But forlatex.tex, compiled in latex, put the soft breathing over the uppercase Alpha; it stands on top of the letter and looks silly. Whereas forxelat...

Image width using \includegraphics with XeLaTeX Topic is solved

I ran the following code first with pdflatex, then with xelatex. In pdflatex, the width option is obeyed for both included pdfs. In xelatex, the width option is obeyed only for hey.pdf, which is a vector image. The image ike-1957-06-16.pdf, which is a scanned newspaper clipping, comes in huge. All p...

standard font for CJK and polytonic Greek

This spins off http://latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=25485&p=87068#p87068, where Johannes_B patiently helped to create a working example that compiles and displays polytonic Greek. Is there a standard font that will display English, Western European languages, polytonic Greek...

Re: polytonic Greek

The following compiled and the Greek was visible: \documentclass[12pt]{article} \usepackage{fontspec} \setmainfont{Times New Roman} %\setmainfont{Latin Modern Roman} \begin{document} This is a test. Greek: 382 οὔτ' ἄκριες ἔσχεθον ὁρμήν: \end{document} With "Latin Modern Roman" instead of &...
