Re: Problem with other backends than html / docbook

This is a fortuitous posting. I was considering starting a topic like this.
While I know the latex backend is experimental, I also know my needs are simple and I thought I might not push it past its limits. Lately I gave it a try.
So two things ...
To answer the thread's question first -- I got the same error. You see, the manual says somewhere that asciidoc will try to load in all the filters it finds in the filter directory. That includes the source-filter (or whatever it's called, see below) filter. But there's something wrong with it, so even if you aren't using source-highlight-filtering, you get an error.
My favorite theories about it are: You might have to install the source-highlight package to get it to work. OR .... the name of the source hilight filter may have changed recently, and the asciidoc referencing hasn't caught up yet.
Anyway ... WORKAROUND ... The way to turn the thing off is to create a file named
in the folder with the filter's config file. I found mine in the filters folder, which is in the asciidoc or .asciidoc folder in the machine's \user\(username)\AppData\Roaming (or in the Documents and Settings\(username)\ ) section , since I'm on windows.
That keeps the filter from trying to load, and asciidoc and the latex backend can proceed.
But then there's my question.
...... I used this on the 8.6.7 distribution's doc\asciidoc.txt file.
...... Did everyone else that tried this get the same thing, that all
...... the tables ran off the right hand side of the pdf's page?
(I am planning to examine the latex source that was generated for the tables, but I ran out of time.)
