problems with Wikipedia symbols and figures


Since Linuxforums is going to use Wikipedia's software this might be significant. I have RH 9 "everything" Mozilla, in a generic machine and am unable to view embedded text symbols or Greek, as well as most figures and often formulas in Wikipedia. I thought possibly Tex/LaTex was broken, but I have the same problem with FC 5 and Firefox and the same material. This might be significant for analytics, drawing networks etc.

example of problem

No figures, no formulae, but it looks like I have a page full of Tex/LaTex notata

en.wikipedia.org.wiki.Newtonian-foundations-of-general-relativity-68k-

This is not the only case, but it is more or less typical.

My guess is that today, with "plain vanilla FC 5 everything" installation something is'nt getting turned on.

I'm a debian user...and the site you were refering to displays fine.
Code:
en.wikipedia.org.wiki.Newtonian-foundations-of-general-relativity-68k-
this is not a link , but none the less it is what you posted.
Code:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newtonian_foundation_of_general_relativity
this is the correct link.

Now either your character encoding setting is a total mess, or you're trying to make things difficult

What do you mean with
Quote:
Tex/LaTex notata
?

The Browser has nothing to do with Tex/LaTex, all it gets are a bunch of *.png files, for example
http://upload.wikimedia.org/math/f/4...e9349a2239.png
for a formula.

But maybe post an example of the output you get from your browser!

another example

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stress-energy_tensor - 34k

Everything before "Einstein" is OK - all after is glitched, plaintext is OK, but Greek letters look like Tex/LaTex code ("notata"). Using FC 5 install w/ Firefox.

If it's in the Source end, it looks like a change happened midway. If in the Browser end, it's likely generic to RH 9 and FC 5, since I get same problem w/ both (2 machines).

Suggested upload is OK. Maybe 2 versions of word editor?
