Which package are those fonts in? I do have fonts-stix installed, but it seems that's not what you mean. I can't find any special fonts mentions in the CSS file either. -- Dmitry Shachnev

I'll try it in a separated project and repository and keep contact by here (the docutils-devel list). I'm studying docutils code and soon will have some questions and/or enhancement proposals (specially for the documentation in website). Thank you again. -- Silas Silva

Besides the old branch, there is also a set of (outdated) patches at the docutils tracker. However, there is unfortunately no developer with the time and expertise to take up the ends and implement this in a clean and compatible way :-( This means you still have to rely on custom roles for cases like:: .. role:: macro_1 .. role:: macro_2 :class: macro_1 macro2 Emulate :macro_2:nesting. resulting in ::

Emulate nesting.

or :: Emulate \DUrole{macro-1}{\DUrole{macro2}{nesting}}. with Docutils rst2html and rst2latex respectively. (The Sphinx LaTeX output may differ, because Sphinx uses a quite old fork of the LaTeX writer that is missing many fixes and additions.) You can inherit standard roles like:: .. role:: special-sub(sub) resulting in

this is a special subscript.

or this is a \textsubscript{\DUrole{special-sub}{special subscript}}. with Docutils rst2html and rst2latex respectively. Günter

Of course there cannot be a full what-you-see-is-what-you-get editor for all this formats, as what-you-get depends on the output format, but I assume you are aware of this and use WYSIWYG meaning "rich text editor" (or what LyX_ calls WYSIWYM). .. _LyX: http://www.lyx.org > I've looked for a true WYSIWYG editor for rst and, the closest thing I > got was dual panel editors, where you type rst in one side and it > renders another.

Thanks for you offer. As the interaction between Docutils and the future editor is limited to a quite cleanly defined interface (the rst source and program calls) it might be simpler to run the development either independent or as a parallel project__. __ http://docutils.sourceforge.net/docs/dev/policies.html#parallel-projects You may start this as a sandbox project__ or using some independent host, whatever better suits your needs. Once it is set up, we can add a link in the Docutils link list. In any way, I'd appreciate to keep contact via the docutils-devel mail list. Thanks a lot, Günter
