Hi all,

I've just started using WW (v. 1.8) this semester after attending the minicourse in Baltimore. All seems to be going well so far, but I have one little question.

I've been told that typeset2 is the preferred mode to use since it is faster. However typeset comes up as the default.

How do I make typeset2 the default?

I expect that this is obviously a newbie question. I will probably have more in the next few months, so if there is a better place to look for answers than this discussion group, please let me know.

Here is what you should do to make typeset2 the default:

In set:

# The default rendering mode for onscreen problem display:
# 'HTML' = raw TeX source
# 'HTML_tth' = HTML formatted with TTH
# 'HTML_dpng' = HTML formatted with LaTeX/dvipng
# 'Latex2HTML' = Images generated by LaTeX2HTML
$htmlModeDefault = 'HTML_dpng';

i.e. define dvipng as the default mode (currently it looked like the default is 'HTML' which is fine for an initial test of the setup, but not for actual courses).

If in addition you want to remove LateX2HTML and rename typeset2 to typeset, then in change


$available_mode_list = [
['HTML', 'text'],
['HTML_tth', 'formatted-text'],
['HTML_dpng' ,'typeset2'],
['Latex2HTML', 'typeset']


$available_mode_list = [
['HTML', 'text'],
['HTML_tth', 'formatted-text'],
['HTML_dpng' ,'typeset'],
# ['Latex2HTML', 'typeset']

i.e. comment out Latex2HTML mode and rename typeset2 as typeset.
