Description Rainer Bielefeld 2006-04-23 13:24:44 UTC
The .svg from a.m. URL contains a "small type Phi", which will be replaced by a
"capital type Phi" in the replacement .png, which is created for using the image
in WIKIPEDIA articles.

Steps tor reproduce:
1. open a.m. URL
   you will see the (wrong) "Φ" for the angle
2. click 'Elevation_angle_0.svg'
   The .svg image will be shown in your browser (if it is able to show 
   .svg images) with the correct letter "φ".

I also have a problem of this kind, where a Δ is replaced by a "D" in the
PNG version, compare


there is also a problem with the arrow heads
Comment 2 Daniel Kinzler 2006-04-27 10:52:32 UTC
For the problem with arrows, see bug 5325.
Comment 3 Christophe Dang Ngoc Chan 2006-04-27 15:22:31 UTC
Concerning the \Delta, I'll change the D in Symbol by the unicode character,
which may solve the problem.
Comment 4 Christophe Dang Ngoc Chan 2006-05-03 07:24:48 UTC
I've changed the D in symbol font by the unicode character Δ, and it did not
solve the problem: the delta does not appear at all in PNG rendering.
Comment 5 Kyungjoon Lee 2007-01-20 00:52:05 UTC
Could this be related to bug 8666?
Comment 6 Tim Starling 2007-04-18 22:18:36 UTC
Both test cases appear to be fixed now, after installing more fonts. The problem
with the arrows is unrelated to the original report.
