    I fell in love with it when I used the PHP interface. Once again matts++ for working on da sexy bomb shit. (gnat-- for failure to maintain hipness in the face of aging)

    I'll just note that the string_width() problem is the first running jump onto the waterslide of formatting that ends up with you reimplementing TeX in Perl without the shitty fonts.

    • Hey I *like* the TeX fonts!

      Seriously though, I got it working. It was much easier than I thought it would be. I suspect it would be nice to extend it so I could setup some sort of bounding box object, and allow the user to just print into that and have the wrapping sorted. But that's for another day.
    • Speaking of which, if anyone has a way of getting TeX to use OpenType fonts (with proper small caps, Old style figures for running text etc), I'd really, really like to know about it...
