Dictionary postformating - help needed

Using KoReader on a Pocketbook, I tried to force it to show some formatting.
Allready done:

set sametypesequence=h in wiki.ifo file

with:

Code:
/mnt/ext1/applications/koreader # ./sdcv -02 data/dict Zwickel
i get:

Code:
g_mkdir failed: No such file or directory
Found 1 item, similar to Zwickel.
-->De-De (Wiktionary)
-->Zwickel

<i>Substantiv, m</i><i>, Zwi·ckel, Pl. Zwi·ckel</i><br><b>Bedeutungen:</b><br>1. Architektur: eine dreiseitig begrenzte, ebene oder sphärische Fläche<br>2. Schneiderei: ein keilförmiger Einsatz an Kleidungsstücken<br>3. regional: ein sonderbarer oder seltsamer Mensch<br>4. regional: spezieller Zapfhahn zur Verprobung des Jungbieres<br><b>Synonyme:</b><br>2. Gehre<br>3. Sonderling<br>
Since this is shown only as Plaintext I thought, following the discussion on GIHUB:
https://github.com/koreader/koreader/pull/3573
I could force KoReader to change some of the Dictrionary html code on the fly by putting a wiki.lua file in the same folder where the dictionary is located and the wiki.ifo file can be found with the following code:

Code:
return function(html)
    html = html:gsub('<b>', '<span style="font-weight: bold; font-size: 1.1em">')
    html = html:gsub('</b>', '</span>')    
    html = html:gsub('<i>', '<span style="font-style: italic; font-size: 0.9em ">')   
    html = html:gsub('</i>', '</span>')
    html = html:gsub('<br/>', '&nbsp;<div></div>')
    return html
end
but that didn't help either.
What went wrong, where is my error? Please help.

I don't see <br> in there, so you should try html = html:gsub("<br>", "<br/>") (and look at the error log).

Thanks for the help. So strange: now its working!
Before I had only plaintext dictionary entries showing, but changes I made in the Dic name of the ifo file didn't show up. In the meantime the device switched off and now every dictionary I created with html entries does show them instead of the plaintext it showed before, even without the lua files.
So my guess now is, my changes in the ifo files "sametypesequence=h" needed a reboot, even then I thought, that switching to mass storage mode and restart KoReader would force it to use the new ifo file.
I'm a very happy user now.

Quick question about this: do these ad-hoc .lua files have any impact on performance/battery life of using the dictionary? Theoretically I mean.

Theoretically yes, but that depends on what you're putting inside those lua files. Examples like the above with a few strings substitutions are quite cheap. (Much much much cheaper than rerendering a whole book or using WiFi)

So practically: nope.

Interesting... But isn't the Lua code run every time you do a lookup?

Even if you ran the code in the OP a hundred times on each lookup for no apparent reason you probably still wouldn't notice it.

The lookup itself is orders of magnitude more demanding than a handful of simple string substitutions.
