You are not getting the latexwiki stylesheet.  Did you install latexwiki
in the quick installer?

What do you mean "printing doesn't work".  What goes wrong?  (don't have
a printer here at home to test right now...)

Be aware that mozilla has a bug in which it can't print transparent
PNG' prints them as solid black instead.  IE prints okay but the
resolution differences mean that the math looks really crappy.  It seems
printing from plone looks ultra crappy anyway.

I envision a true latex backend for Structured Text which will
dynamically create ps or pdf for printing, rather than expecting the web
browser to do everything correctly.

If you are up to figuring out darcs, you can create patches against my
darcs repository  See for some info on it.  Otherwise send me
updated patches or put them on the web somewhere.  ;)
