Re: Cannot render the ⌥ symbol

*[class ~= "ui-d/uicontrol"], .uicontrol { font-family: "Cambria Math", Symbol; } Thanks Dan, but that doesn't work for me. First problem is I haven't Cambria Math on any of my systems. Second is the available Symbol fonts lack a bold glyph, which totally changes the appearance of my <uicontrol> it...

Re: Cannot render the ⌥ symbol

It turns out the issue is the <uicontrol>. When I define ⌥ out in the paragraph, it renders just fine. However, I haven't found any way of embedding single character with a different font than the default text. If you have a workaround that works, please let me know.

Cannot render the ⌥ symbol

When I generate a PDF from HTML that contains the "⌥" symbol, Chemistry is rendering the result as "#". The source HTML file has the following:

Code: Select all

<span class="ph uicontrol">&#8997; option</span> key
Chemistry is failing to convert that Unicode correctly. Any suggested workarounds?

Re: Chemistry ignores cell span directives

Hi Costin, I actually misspoke in my previous request. I'm using Chemistry to generate the PDF from an intermediate HTML file. Here's the HTML in question: <tr class="row"> <td class="entry" headers="network-analysis-graph__controls__entry__1 network-analysis-graph__controls__entry__2 " colspan="2">...

Chemistry ignores cell span directives

I need a table cell to span two columns. Marked it with <entry namest="c1" nameend="c2">. The columns c1 and c2 are defined in the proper place. Works correctly when rendered into HTML but fails when rendering to PDF. Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround?

Re: Display URL

Thanks for the answers, folks. My engineers have suggested URL mangling so that our users won't try to copy&paste the link. That should also kill the live link that the PDF reader generates.

Re: Chemistry chokes on extended-ISO entity

This fix works for me. As I tag the rightarrow character, I was able to make your fix more specific so I don't get a font change applied to the rest of my text.

Re: widows and orphans

Although it sometimes generates unwanted whitespace, I found using "page-break-after: avoid;" mostly keeps my steps together.

Code: Select all

li.step:before{
content: "Step " counter(item) ": " !important;
counter-increment: item;
font-weight: bold;
page-break-after: avoid;
