Description Bob Dowling 2002-05-13 14:18:35 EDT

Description of problem:
Any attempt to process a docbook document containing &thgr; leads to
the underlined text "texttheta" appearing in the output.  However &THgr; (an
uppercase text theta) works fine.

Splitting the command into its consituent parts yields the error message "The
Unicode package knows about symbol texttheta, but the font package is not
loaded".  Given that &THgr; works I have reason to doubt the accuracy of this

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a docbook file involving &thgr; (or use my theta.xml from the URL above)
2.docbook2pdf theta.xml
3.acroread theta.pdf


Actual Results:  The page viewed contains the underlined text "thesttheta"
followed by an uppercase text theta.  

Expected Results:  The page should display a lowercase text theta followed by an
uppercase text theta.

The font package it's talking about is 'lucidabr', and it really isn't loaded.  
But loading it seem to cause other problem.  The easy work-around is to just 
use math mode when displaying that character.  I'll do that in the next 
jadetex build.

Fixed in jadetex-3.12-4.
