There is no difference between "attached files" and text parts.    They are all the same.  Every part is an attachment, and every  attachment is a message part.I see now, thanks. Yes, a MIME driver could solve the problem. It is a lot easier, though, if you use MathJax: if you include their  JS, it automatically parses all LaTeX it can find. See  http://www.mathjax.org/docs/1.1/start.html#mathjax-cdn I was just not able to find the place where I had to include the  script tag because apparently code that creates a "simple" mail  viewing frame is scattered over dozens of files (in Imp 4.3.4; was not  able to install the newest version yet.)I guess I have no idea what you are talking about then.  If you are  talking about syntax highlighting the rendered data inside of a  Latex file, this is not syntax highlighting as the term is commonly  used.  Syntax highlighting refers to marking up source code based on  the language's grammar - which we (should) already support for latex  files.Syntax Highlighting was not mentioned wrt LaTeX. Let's forget I  brought this up at all because it is not important for this ticket.

There is no difference between "attached files" and text parts.  They  are all the same.  Every part is an attachment, and every attachment  is a message part. Essentially, there are two ways to handle a message part - allow a  user to download the raw data to be handled by their local computer,  or to attempt to parse this data and produce some sort of useful  output.  The former is essentially the download button, the latter is  what a Mime Viewer does.Yes.  But that's what you asked for in the original ticket posting. A syntax highlighter is not supposed to do anything else (e.g. render the data).No, this is never what I wanted to propose (although my wishes might  have been ambiguous wrt syntax highlighting).I guess I have no idea what you are talking about then.  If you are  talking about syntax highlighting the rendered data inside of a Latex  file, this is not syntax highlighting as the term is commonly used.    Syntax highlighting refers to marking up source code based on the  language's grammar - which we (should) already support for latex files.

If so, that is not  the point of this ticket (see above).Yes.  But that's what you asked for in the original ticket posting.    A syntax highlighter is not supposed to do anything else (e.g.  render the data).No, this is never what I wanted to propose (although my wishes might  have been ambiguous wrt syntax highlighting).
 2011-06-22 04:57:55 Michael Slusarz Comment #4 Reply to this comment This can easily be accomplished by creating a Horde_Mime_Viewer driver.If I understand correctly what a Mime driver is, this would enable  Horde to display entire LaTeX files. Or do you mean one could write  an alternative for the standard plain driver to handle LaTeX? To be clear: I was thinking of parsing standard math environments  like $...$ or $...$ using some backend.A Mime Driver takes input data, and outputs a (normally) text/html  representation of the contents.We already support syntax highlighting.  See the syntaxhighlighter driver (horde/config/mime_drivers.php).Indeed, thanks for the pointer. But again, it "only" highlights  syntax in attached files, doesn't it?Yes.  But that's what you asked for in the original ticket posting.  A  syntax highlighter is not supposed to do anything else (e.g. render  the data).

 2011-06-14 18:03:11 Michael Slusarz Comment #2State ⇒ Accepted Reply to this comment I send and receive lots of emails containing formulae, most of the  time set in (pseudo) LaTeX for sake of mutual understanding.  Obviously, reading plain LaTeX code is not optimal. Horde could easily render LaTeX in mails (notes, ...). If it were to  use MathJax, including one Javascript file in appropriate places  would be sufficient.This can easily be accomplished by creating a Horde_Mime_Viewer driver.(Supporting mathy mails might make Horde even more attractive to  techy folk than it already is. While you are at it, think about  syntax highlighting, too. ;))We already support syntax highlighting.  See the syntaxhighlighter  driver (horde/config/mime_drivers.php).
