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.

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.
