Description of problem:
Bugs #20604 and #121889 have noted similar problems in the past. 
Apparently the outdated version needs to be removed upstream.

The version of texi2html in tetex-2.0.2-21 is 1.55, from
2004/07/27. There is a much newer version available at:


Ideally texi2html and its siblings would be removed from
the tetex package altogether and given a separate package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install tetex

Hello Joshua,

I see the version of texi2html is rather old so an update of it is
fine. The version of texi2html in tetex-2.0.2-21 is 1.64, not 1.55.
When following the link you gave me I see only a project homepage of
texi2html but no link to tarball/sources/patches to a newer version of
texi2html. Could you give me a correct link?

Sorry about the version number mixup... to get to the tarballs you
click on "Documents and Files" on the left, which is:


For some reason the newest are at the bottom. Thanks.

Ok, thanks. The text was so tiny that I haven't noticed that. I did a
brief testing of the texi2html-1.72 and it looks sane. I'll look more
at it tomorrow and will close this bug when tetex packages are updated.

Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2005-01-07 07:09:54 EST
texi2html is now updated within teTeX. Thanks for the announce.
