Congratulations!  I'm still working on my first.

I have been struggling to set up my transliteration scheme in
LyX/LaTeX.  What do you use for transliterating aleph and ayin?  By
this I mean, what packages and/or symbols do you use?  I currently am
using an apostrophe for aleph and the \ain command from the wsuipa
package, which is a mirrored apostrophe.  It looks ok, but I'd rather
use the customary symbols (smallish sans-serif c).

Congratulations again and here's to holding fast to one's principles!
I'm editing a volume of essays right now as well, and they don't know
it yet, but they'll be getting pdf's and text files.

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% LyX specific LaTeX commands.
%% Because html converters don't know tabularnewline
\providecommand{\tabularnewline}{\\}

and then uses

\tabularnewline

throughout tables.  The latex2HTML program understands this only for
the first table but then gets confused (for some reason).

I have just been just

1. exporting lyx to (la)tex
2. use a text editor to globally change \tabularnewline to \\
3. run latex2html outside of lyx

I posted the problem to this list a while ago but did not post my work
around.

Thanks, Herbert, but renaming the image to von-neuman.bmp didn't make any
difference. Here is the part of the file that makes a problem...

ok, I see. You put the graphic into the caption, named with the
label FIGURE#. Always hit enter and put the image before this
caption line. see attached file (click on the image to insert
this one new to get the right path)

You should consider using "latin modern" or "cm-super" instead of ae (better
quality). cm-super is a bit more tricky to install and a huge package, latin
modern is small and easy to install, but still in beta state (but already
much better than ae imho).

### eps not showing in colour when in dvi/pdf formats

Hi,

I've just started using lyx after having learnt a bit of latex earlier this
year...

I've installed the windows version (not the henstel - the other one) on my
laptop, with the lastest ghostscript, and a version of miktex I was using
earlier this year.

I inserted a colour eps graphic into my lyx document using the float-figure
command... but it doesn't seem to show up as colour when i view the dvi on
yap or the pdf on acroread.

the converter used is epstopdf... I don't have imagemagick installed -

Would this be the reason?  Or is something else making the graphic go grainy
black and white?

A reduced superscripted sans-serif c would look best, but this is a
case where I don't bother to get fancy in a manuscript.  Unless you're
publishing yourself, or have a contract that lets you provide
camera-ready copy, the publisher's design department will make the
final choice of fonts, which may or may not include the best version
of some symbols.  Pedantic typography can be a turn-off for a general
trade book, and the publisher may or may not conclude that a proper
ayin would be best for the planned market.  I leave those details to
be worked out with the copy-editor.

I have yet to meet a publisher (my experience is only trade and
university presses) that was enthusiastic about .pdf submissions.
Their copy-editing and production software is geared to PC
word-processor files, especially ms-word.  If you have fonts and
symbols that do not reproduce in ascii text files, be ready for
headaches when you prepare final manuscript submissions.

Thanks for the fast answer. Did what you said, got one more eror !
In short :
Insert Graphics --> 4 errors
Float Figure, then Insert Graphics (my (wrong) way) --> 5 errors
Float Figure, then Insert Graphics (your (right) way) --> 6 errors
I'm getting crazy and frustrated as I want my students to have some pretty
figures in the support text they get...
