# asciidoc vs dblatex

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:
0
• if you want to avoid the dblatex logo, just comment out the line:
1
• 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. :)
