Macro for TeXLive and PCTeX ??

High odd question - and I'm sure it's been asked before but I can't find it. We have the \TeX{} and \LaTeX{} macros. In book I am working on, it is open source book released under FDL but I mention the FDL doesn't cover fonts used in the printing of the content, so printing the PDF or photocopying t...

vim in terminal and syntax highlight

Note -

Also discovered (while reading the tex.vim file) that adding

%stopzone

to the LaTeX file also tells vim to restore normal syntax highlight when a custom Verbatim environment causes a problem.

Adding note here in case search engines send people here.

The file presently working on where it is an issue - https://gitlab.com/Pipfrosch/librelampdocumentation/blob/master/man/libressl.cnf.5.tex Line 326 (line number may change as I work on it) in the gitlab rendering shows where start of issue is - I don't care about gitlab getting it right, but it's a...

vim in terminal and syntax highlight

Hello, I'm currently porting some man pages to LaTeX for the appendix of another documentation project I'm working on. The color syntax works well enough but one issue - When I use \begin{Verbatim} it can figure out that $ within are not the start of math. however I'm actually using \begin{ManVerbat...

Special Characters for Times ???

I think I am going to buy a font - there's a really nice one called Mengelt Basel Antiqua. It's opentype. With respect to the URW Antiqua font - the italic is emulated (tfm but no actual .pfb/.pfa) and I wonder if that's the problem when I try using newer than pdflatex engine. Mengelt Basel Antigua ...

Special Characters for Times ???

I'll have to dig up the link I downloaded it from. Just tried xelatex and it seems I didn't install one of my fonts (I'm guessing URW Antiqua) correctly for xelatex - mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 uaqrrc.pfa mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 uaqrrc.pfa mkt...

Special Characters for Times ???

Looks like U+222B could be abused to provide a long s. -=- pdflatex is what I am using, which pretty much limits me to type 1 fonts but OpenType fonts with type 1 outline can usually be converted, within the 256 character limit - or as multiple type 1 fonts if more are needed. I will try specifying ...

Special Characters for Times ???

I've actually switched to URW Antiqua for German written with Roman letters. Times has some problems, for example if an i or j is next to a letter with an umlaut, the dot over the i and j is at a different height than on the umlaut. URW Antiqua does not have that problem. Unfortunately using URW Ant...
