asciidoc vs dblatex

Estimated read time: 1 minutes

so, in the latest stable version of asciidoc, the default pdf backend of a2x is dblatex, not fop.

given that this way we can avoid Java, that must be a good thing ;) (faster, freeer, etc)

here are a few tricks:

  • if you want to hide the "revision history" page:
  • if you want to avoid the dblatex logo, just comment out the line:
  • it seems that atm the $ math expression $ form is not supported, but you can do for example:

    <inlineequation><alt> \[ \$\alpha + \$\beta = \$(\alpha + \beta) \] </alt></inlineequation>

    AFAIK this was not possible till now, using fop. :)
