Math characters from isoXXXX.ent

Post by dnedrow » Fri Jan 27, 2006 6:43 am

I create all of my University papers using DocBook XML, which I then transform via XEP 4.5 (via oXygen).

My problem is that in the resulting printable format (PDF, PS), the "Added Math Symbols: Relations" (isoamsr.ent) that I'm referencing are not being displayed/generated in the resulting file.


The following...

Code: Select all

<title>a &ge; b + c</title>
...should show the <= glyph representation in ...

Code: Select all

a <= b + c
However, a blank space is inserted where the glyph should be.


Code: Select all

a   b + c
I'm sure I've done this in the past, but I have no idea what's happening now. Could it be a font issue?

XEP is issuing no errors, but I'm obviously not getting what I think I should be.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello David,

I noticed in the Docbook isoamsr.ent file that the name of the entity is gE not ge. Did you define your own entity ge ?

Is the font used in your PDF able to render the "< over =" character ? If not you should set a font able to render it via a FOP configuration file.
