Exploring BibTeX and LaTeX: the elegant way for ‘and’ and the floats

I’ve already posted about the problem of ‘and’ in multiauthored BibTeX entries. A more elegant solution to avoid the ‘and’ and have instead a more cross-lingual ‘&’ is simply change the bibliography style: agsm is not very used but work its way — however, the poor personal names of your authors and editors become a punctuated capital, sigh.

Other topic: today I crossed for the first time the following error, compiling with XeTeX (but uninfluent in this case):

Too many unprocessed floats

The shell output requests to see the LaTeX manual or Companion. The Lamport (1994) I didn’t found the solution, rather a quick and dirty explanation is at page 912 of the Companion: the LaTeX buffer holds up to 18 floats, to have 36 you have to require the package morefloats in the preamble.

If there is a float that cannot be placed for some reason this change will merely delay receiving the above eroor. See Chapter 6 for ways to deal with this situation.

Ok, let’s see Chapter 6. Stay tuned for the next post after my reading of the LaTeX grimoire.
