## [Fhsst-authors] Potpourri

1. When I make a DVI any pstricks lines are omitted. Character portions of the figure do show up. When I make a PDF from the DIV the lines appear. Does this mean something is wrong with my pstricks install? Or is this an inherent limitation of pstricks? I experience the same behavior on my Windows system and my GNU/Linux system.


2. I am at a loss for how to proceed on the logs stuff. I don't know what the "inverse method" is. It isn't mentioned in the Mathematics Curriculum (in the "other" dir). I can't imagine why the exponential function section comes after the exponential and logarithmic functions section. I am somewhat confused about the placement of function symmetry right in the middle of the discussion of logs and the exponential.

Anyway, I am working from the following in the Curriculum:

• analyses and recognises situations in which it may be helpful to
manipulate
• representations:
o converting fluently between exponential and logarithmic forms
of an equation
o deriving and using the laws of logarithms where appropriate


3. \begin{figure}[!h] is not recommended, but is used frequently (43 times) in hsalgebra. In fact, contemporary versions of LaTeX automatically convert this to !ht. Maybe these should be changed to a more liberal setting?

Thanks for any and all guidance!

-Peter
