CTAN Update: morehype

Date: May 30, 2012 5:20:09 PM CEST
On Wed, 30 May 2012, Uwe Lück submitted an update to the morehype package. License type: lppl Announcement text:
MAJOR CHANGES: - The "pure expansion" limitation for the `blog.sty' way to HTML is overcome by "intercepting" certain "commands" such as \EXECUTE, \begin, and \end (configurable). So you can introduce shorthand macros specific for a certain web page within its source `.tex' file, or even limited to an environment. And environment nesting is checked! And we introduce certain nice active characters for an intuitive table syntax. - We also use "intercepting" to support "ligatures" (`--', `---', `...', ...) and some Wikipedia and Markdown markup (font switching, highlighting by colours, Wikipedia links). Parsing can be enabled within macro arguments by modifying the two backbone macros that implement "short" HTML elements. This way, `blog.sty' becomes "fun" (but also slow ...) ... - A kind of minimalist "multilanguage" approach based on "languages codes" and the `dowith' package for adjusting language-dependent settings is used. Unfortunately, this upload is somewhat hasty, in order to provide the files generating `latexfileinfo_pkgs.htm' (`latexfileinfo-pkgs'). Some of the powerful code must later move from the "patch" file `texblog.fdf' into proper packages and be documented better. MINOR CHANGES: - `atari_ht.fdf' replaces `atari.fdf' to use HTML entities for umlauts instead of relying on the encoding declaration - `blog.sty' accesses some more characters than before - `texlinks.sty' uses \langcode for Wiki... + minor additions
