@loke Probably cooler than watching someone try to change Evince keybindings :)

@lthms Thanks! In the end, it’s all about taking glyphs from a font and drawing them at the right positions.
Well, and sometimes you need to replace a glyph with another depending on the context, and that’s where the problems begin. But it’s simpler in math typesetting than in general typesetting when dealing with complex scripts.

Evince is a good PDF viewer but changing the keybindings of this kind of Gnome programs is Mission: Impossible.

Today, turned mathematical typesetting into a package of , and documented it. 😊 Math typesetting in mainline SILE soon maybe 🤞

@Nausicaa ouais si j'avais implémenté que ça personne l'aurait jamais utilisé je pense ^^

I've just created a new #functional #programming community on #matrix. If you are into #haskell, #ocaml, #coq, #lisp, #idris etc you might want to visit #lambdapunk:acmelabs.space See you there! 😸

Oh waouh, c’est beau : une thèse sur les formats d’édition publiée sous de multiples formes : these.robindemourat.com/

J'aime bien faire joujou avec la typographie et les polices mais être confronté au même bugs depuis six mois et n'avoir personne pour aider, c'est parfois décourageant.

@pipoprods @Poslovitch C'est vrai, mais d'après certains ( @deltadelta ?) tous ne respectent pas strictement la norme.

@civodul tbh at size 9 or 10 I find them quite hard to notice if you’re not looking for them

@Poslovitch Je plussoie la personne qui dit que c'est beaucoup de boulot (dont mon instance ne peut charger le message pour une raison inconnue ?), gérer la réputation de ton domaine c'est assez chiant au début. L'inconvénient d'héberger son serveur mail c'est aussi que tu risques de rater des mails importants si ton serveur tombe et que tu es en vacances. Personnellement, c'est l'une des rares choses que je n'auto-héberge pas (même si j'utilise mon propre nom de domaine pour l'adresse mail).

My opinion about ligatures is undecided. They definitely are cool, and a nice thing to have, but the only ones who notice them are the ones knowing about the concept of ligature already.

“nrf” books by Gallimard are typeset without any ligature — not even ffi — and that kinda surprises me.

@pkra Aah, I see.

re: TeX in real world production 

@pkra What kind of punctuation are you talking about? Would you have an example?
