Description of problem:
The version of latex2html which comes with tetex-latex-2.0.2-14FC.2 has 'japanese' as the default language (see /usr/share/latex2html/l2hconf.pm, lines 735 and 927). There is no clear way in the documentation to change this at run time. Perhaps English would be a better default.
This was originally reported on a Fedora mailing list (see url).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run latex2html on any latex file
2.Open the resulting html in a browser
3.See that it looks broken due to japanese encoding
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Yes, since the latex2html is a part of tetex in FC2, changing component to
tetex. I can confirm that in the separate latex2html package we have since FC4,
english is used as a default language.
okay, so this is fixed in the next release. marking bug resolved.
