This update fixes bug 27324 by loading the eurosym package to provide
the euro symbol. This requires the eurosym package be available in
the installed LaTeX distribution. Five new commands are now
recognized by texvc: \euro, \geneuro, \geneuronarrow, \geneurowide,
and \officialeuro. All provide varients of the euro symbol, and \euro
is simply short alias for \officialeuro. In addition some minor
changes have been introduced the html rendering of some math symbols.
The new choices provide html symbols that are higher degree of
similarity in comparison to the corresponding LaTeX symbols.

tagged 'scap-trap'. Live WMF cluster will require the 'eurosym' package.

rt ticket #1434 has been logged asking for the texlive-fonts-recommended [1] ubuntu package (includes eurosym) to the apaches for Math rendering

+              (if !modules_euro then "\\usepackage{eurosym}\n" else "") ^

Will this fallback gracefully? ie If we don't have the package, will these things just not work?

That's entirely up to LaTeX and how it's called. I think there's a way to tell it to skip over the error of a package not being available, and also the errors related to the characters needing the eurosym package, although the results will more than likely be broken in some way.

Cheers, shouldn't end up being an issue... It's trivial enough to add another package (especially as it exists in the ubuntu repos etc) so that this will work

The euro tweaks are straightforward. I'm not certain about what browsers will do with "&#8477" if some extended font with something resembling \mathbb{R} isn't available. There might be a backwards compatibility issue here.

Added needs-parsertest keyword; an example should be added to parser tests to confirm use of \euro works without failing.

#Comment by Brion VIBBER (talk | contribs)   19:04, 13 September 2011

Provisionally reverted in r96990 pending test cases.

The bits above indicate that \euro should be renderable as HTML, but in my testing it forces PNG output on regular settings. Is this intended?

May need to switch it to HTMLABLEC to mark it as conservative.

Phi changes look ok... varepsilon I think is ok (not sure if there's a standard for the other epsilon form, so ok to leave that as tex-only I guess?). The set number symbols as numeric char entities render ok for me in Firefox / Ubuntu 11.04, but since they're not marked conservative most people probably won't see them rendered that way anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much about compat on those.

Reapplied in r97007 with parser test cases and a tweak to let \euro render through to HTML in more conservative modes.
