latex problem

Hi,

Guess I have one more trivial (?) problem:
r'$\AA$' - results in 'ValueError: unrecognized symbol "\AA"'
and r'$\%$' - does not get displayed at all on my system, anything followed
the '\%' gets truncated.

I'm still working with matplotlib version 0.86.2, and could think that a
library is missing. However, I compiled my version of mpl and have freetype,
libpng, as well as zlib installed (SUSE 10.0).

Any hints how to solve this are appreciated.

TIA
Christian

When encountering latex errors, please try to determine whether latex can do
what you are trying to do by making and compiling a test latex file outside
of matplotlib. That way, you can direct your questions either here, if
appropriate, or perhaps to comp.text.tex.

The \AA problem is a latex syntax error, not an mpl issue. Your latex does not
have a mathmode $\AA$ (although mine does), what you want is just \AA. As for
your problem with r'$\%$', r'$\% ok$' and r'$\%$ ok' both work just fine for
me (svn matplotlib, but I dont think the version should matter here.) A small
example script illustrating your problem would be helpful.
