Again: It works well on my Woody and Sarge box but www-masters version
of apt-howto.ko.pdf has wrong fonts. Can someone check whether
hlatex and hlatex-fonts-base are installed? If yes I assume Recommends:
is incomplete (I added already gs and cjk-latex, ..., a few
Chinese/Japanese fonts are still missing in Recommends since I had no
time to check that all fonts used in debian-reference package are really

Slovenian added (and bogus LaTeX code from patch fixed).

A really minor fix :-)

Fixed (80% of it was already fixed in the past).

These are not yet fixed.

Sorry, I didn't tried your patch but propose a new one which works.
But I think your patch looks good as well!

I also fixed partially #244625 by changing "\dots " to \dots{}"
which adds a space after ... when necessary. The fonts related
stuff is not applied since I never play with fonts, I use defaults
especially in LaTeX.

NO, it works locally (using the fixlatex script from DDP).

Not yet fixed.

Partially fixed.

PS: I forgot to remove a few Todo items in source package.

As soon as this package is uploaded it should be installed on www-master
(libroman-perl and sgml-data from Sarge are required for this?).
