#### biblatex: Too Many Commas in Name

Howsagoin,

After changing my BibTeX file, I now get errors of the form
Too many commas in name 2 of "Carlisle, D.\,P. and Ratz, S.\,P.\,Q."
for entry graphicx.
The offending entry reads as follows:
@Manual{graphicx,
author = {Carlisle, D.\,P. and
Ratz, S.\,P.\,Q.},
title  = {The \texttt{graphicx} Package},
year   = {1999},
}

When I changed the \, commands to \thinspace the error was gone. I'm
not sure if this is a bug, but I'd like to know if and what I was
doing wrong.

Regards,

Marc van Dongen

have you tried with {\,} instead? comma is special in bibtex and I do
not think it test to see if it is escaped.

as an aside, note that seb's surname is "rahtz".  (i hate parents who
make jokes in the allocation of their children's names -- or as in this
case, initials....)

Look at the initials of Rahtz' name.

Thanks. That worked. I actually had to put the \\thinspace commands
inside braces as well (for obvious reasons).

Just use and to seperate different authors the error will go away.

Naming Names
Naming Names -------- The following is a brief list of observations concerning ad hominem remarks or the naming of names in scientific contexts. Arguments can never be of more general significance than names named. For example, addressing critical arguments to ideas or thoughts, makes the arguments more general than if addressed to an individual whereas arguments addressed to an individual are of more specific and less general significance than those addressed to ideas and thoughts of an individual.

.DIR performance with many versions vs. many unique names ?
Hi. Just a quick question... Would there be any difference in performance (lookup, delete and so on) on a directory when using unique names vs. having fewer names but multiple versions ? That is, having the same total number of files in both cases. The actual case is where we want to save batch logs for some time, and I would like to give them unique names (adding a timestamp) instead of just having a lot of old "versions". The issue is of course having versions rolling up to the max version... Maybe having multiple versions of the same file is stored in less space in the .DIR fil...

Name of text effect where text cut out and we see various images underneath?
I've been seeing this technique over in the sci-fi ng a bit lately and I really like it. In both cases, each letter had a different background from the other letters, and the entire piece of text had different pictures from the background. I remember, too, seeing an effect where it looked like the text was a well, meaning, that it was cut out and the picture behind was buried well beneath the ground-line. Is that clear or clear as mud?! Was hoping to do both things. Cut out the interior of each letter and fill with a different picture and to also apply depth to the cutout. TIA! :oD ...

I have a text area that I need to scroll one page at a time until the end of the document. I have a problem, however. How do I know how many pages to scroll before I hit the end of the document? HTML will presumably take care of all the word-wrapping, so it is difficult - if not impossible - for me to determine the number of rows beforehand. As far as I can tell, there is no direct way to tell how many rows of text will be generated by the browser except, perhaps, through use of trial-and-error. But this is not practical because the text will change from one day to the next, and I need to ...

How to separate a big text file (say 400 news stories) to many small text files?

setting TeX text variable depending on keyval-generated param? (low-level TeX question)
I am using keyval to set a "scaled" parameter and am having trouble getting the right behavior, which is: If I \usepackage{package} with no [scaled] option, I want to set a variable to a compile-time-specified default, say "s*[a.b]". If I \usepackage[scaled]{package}, same thing. And if I \usepackage[scaled=x.y], I want to set the variable to "s*[x.y]". (This is for font scaling, and I've used as my model the Helvetica scaled parameter.) The variable name (for the purposes of this conversation) is pnm@scaled. What I have that's not working correctly is: \expandafter\ifx\csname pmn@scaled\endcsname\relax \let\pmn@scaled\@empty \else \edef\pmn@scaled{s*[1.2]}% \fi I think what this says is "if pnm@scaled is not defined (case 1), leave it empty, otherwise set it to "s[1.2]". But the else clause is not working correctly, and I don't know how to differentiate between "defined by keyval but with no value" and "defined by keyval but with a value". Also I'm pretty sure I don't really know the difference between \let and \edef. Any help gratefully appreciated. Thanks.
