Saturday the 29th - Koninginnedag (Queen's Day) celebrations, with the Queen in Leiden (my home town). Avoided the "fun" by doing a bit of hacking at Cistron. Made a preliminary update of the X.25 patch for netbase, and had a lot of fun and disappointments trying to use non-standard PostScript fonts with lout. Learned a bit about using ATM files, and understand the need for projects like the GNU FontManager. In the end, everything looked great in gv, but the HP printer decided to use Courier instead for all but its built-in fonts, even though I embedded the fonts using psutils' includeres. PostScript isn't always as nice as it seems :-(
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
