1 Technical questions

1.1 Math Jax

Why do Atlas pages load and then later up-date the tex further?

  • This is because the Atlas uses WikiTex to render pages quickly and then Math Jax to give higher quality fonts. Math Jax takes some time to re-render the original page.

If you would rather use the Atlas without Math Jax, you can disable Math Jax in the Appearance section of your preferences.

1.2 User-defined commands

I changed my user-defined commands but they don't up-date?

1.3 Line breaks

Why are there so many unwanted extra lines on my page?

  • Unlike LaTeX, WikiTeX is very sensitive to line-breaks: make sure you remove all extra line-breaks in your source file.
  • Also, make sure all wikitex commands are followed by a semi-colon: <wikitex>;.

1.4 Umlauts and accents

What do I do with umlauts and accents: e.g. is it ``ü`` or ``ue``?

  • Where possible, please use accents and umlauts on the Atlas:
    • this is especially important for the names of bib-items but holds throughout the Atlas.
    • e.g. [Lück2002].
  • If your key board does not supply the relevant characters, you can cut and paste from the following lists:
    • Ä, ä, Ö, ö, Ü, ü; Á, á, É, é, Í, í, Ó, ó, ô, Ú, ú; À, à, È, è, Ì, ì, Ò, ò, Ù, ù
    • ą, ć, Ć, ę, ł, Ł, ń, š, ś, Ś, ź, Ź, ż, Ż, Ą, Ę, Ń
    • ø
  • ``, ´´
