Yes, I saw your notice and I look forward to implementing 0.32
but since I have only just got AXIOM working with LatexWiki,
I am a little reluctant to make changes to the
system until people have had a chance to use it and comment on
it. I tried a while back to change the stylesheet used by Zwiki
in Plone, but it didn't work on first try and I didn't have time
to go back to it.

When I get around to it, I would also like to implement the
Microsoft IE AlphaImageLoader filter stylesheet behaviour that
corrects the problem with image backgrounds (not transparent) on

Anyway, if someone has additional system resources to spare,
I would be willing to duplicate what I have done so far on
another system with newer versions of Zope, Zwiki, and Plone.
Right now all of these are about 3 months behind current -
not too bad, but things do change quite quickly in this business.

You can access this page on the Zope-based Zwiki/LatexWiki

I set up both a "stand alone" LatexWiki at

and the Plone-based portal

with the publicly accessible LatexWiki at

These are separate wiki's, one with the vanilla Zwiki Zope
skin and the other with the Plone skin in the portal
environment. I think it would be neat if these could both
contain the same contents with just two different look-and-

There are also other LatexWiki's created by registered users
on the portal.

Apparently UserOptions is only available in the Zope-based

Yes, absolutely. I would consider them licensed under the
same terms as LatexWiki. I would be very happy if you could
just incorporate them into your LatexWiki distribution. I
consider what I have right now as more or less at the "0.20"
version level. It's just one Python module that implements
the filter and a one line change to to
call it before calling renderLatex. I can send you the file
whenever you want. Do you have AXIOM installed on one of
your servers?

> Did you define a new page type?

No, but that might be neat. I don't know enough about Zwiki
yet to do that and I haven't looked closely enough at your
install script. Actually, I think the number of different
page types is rather confusing to most users and if I added
a new type, I would probably want to take other less useful
options away.
