Ah ok now that makes sense. Will be fixed in the next version. In the meantime if you remove the --cover option, you should be ok.

Hi Kovidgoyal,

using txt2lrf I got some text-encoding problems.

German "Umlaute" won't be transfered as they should.

umlaute.txt in ISO-8859-1 was converted with following line
Code:
txt2lrf -a "Tester" -t "Umlautetest" -e "ISO-8859-1" umlaute.txt
to umlaute.lrf.

Maybe I made a mistake?

Sounds like the new encoding handling code is still buggy. I'll fix it when I return.

You got a ticket. No: 192.

Have nice holidays. Or is it a work trip?

I have a few layout questions...

Is there a way, when using lists to get the wrapped lines to indent and line up with the text from the previous line, like this:
Code:
* Here is some text that happens to wrap to the 
   second and third line  and I would like it to 
   indent and line up
Is there an equivalent to <DL> / <DT> for txt2lrf?

Is there a way to force a page break from the text file?

Are there any plans to support descendant selectors when using the --override-css option?

Code:
/* select paragraph tags inside list item tags */
li p
{
     font-style: italics;
}
Thanks for all the hard work!!!

You can just embed HTML for your more sophisticated markup needs. There are no plans to support descendant selectors. I've forgotten the markdown syntax for embedded HTML, but google should allow you to find it in a jiffy.

Alrighty, I'll take a closer look at html2lrf so I can see what html is supported.

The demo file at the start of this thread may prove useful.

Can I stop it from using Markdown at all? I basically have lots of text files which I want to read on the reader as they are in sans-serif font with no jiggling. So plain text, convert it to sans-serif, don't do anything clever with the text.

It shouldn't do anything fancy with your txt if your txt doesn't have any Markdown markup

Unfortunately your txt may have something that looks like markdown markup but isn't, and the tool will make a real mess of it.

An option to disable markup processing would be very useful.

Unfortunately, that isn't really possible without a re-write. The way txt2lrf works is that it uses Markdown to convert plain text into HTML, then converts the HTML into an LRF. Not processing Markdown markup means no HTML, which means nothing to convert into an LRF.

You may want to check out pielrf. I'm not sure that it's still maintained, but the last time I looked at it it worked, and seems to do what you want -- directly convert plain text to LRF with minimal special markup interpretation.
