[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Customizing the Public Interface PDF

Hi Stephen,

Does this render as italics and the proper quotation marks elsewhere (the staff interface, staff PDF, PUI interface except the PDF)? How are the italics indicated in the text in the staff interface? (Is it <span class=”italic emph”> or something else?) What do your quotation marks in this example look like (just quotes or is there some tagging/character entity indication). I’m just trying to figure out at what point this is getting introduced, in the PDF only, or before the PDF and not getting translated as desired in the PDF.

And, in answering those questions, it would be great if you would please post a new ticket on this. Adding as attachments examples of an EAD and the resulting PUI PDF for a finding aid in which this occurs, as well as screenshots from the staff interface and PUI displays would also be great. (If that’s not too much homework!)

Thank you!

I have a further question regarding the PUI PDF processing. We have just implemented v2.2.0 which is working very well, but have encountered  a problem with the PDF generated from the Print button. The PDF includes a lot of EAD tags for formatting such as:

The Holloway Press Launch. Includes copy of <span class="italic emph">The
University of Auckland News</span> article "Press keeps alive
traditional printing techniques", published in Vol. 24, No. 10, Nov/Dec
1994, p 27., Oct 1994

Instead of:

The Holloway Press Launch. Includes copy of The University of Auckland News article "Press keeps alive traditional printing techniques", published in Vol. 24, No. 10, Nov/Dec 1994, p 27.

This seems to be a similar issue to AR-1851. Should I post a new ticket?
