comment How long will it take TeX Live to fit Windows 10?
If it does not work, you could always install VBox on windows, install Linux on the Vbox, and install TexLive there and run it.

comment using --lua option to compile latex file to html fails when including png file with tex4ht and make4ht
thanks very much! I used your second method, modified my make4ht build file using \\RequirePackage[dvipdfmx]{graphicx} and it works very well. Now the lua code works and the result shows in the HTML which is really very good.

comment problem to insert inkscape pdf into latex
I do not know what =\unitlength is. But if the pdf page has no BoundingBox, this looks like an error in how it was generated?

comment What parsers for (La)TeX mathematics exist outside of the TeX engines?
...but a major problem with all these tools (mathjax, KaTex) and other like them that work at the HTML level, is that one loses a major item in the process. Which is the PDF files. Using Latex->tex4ht->HTML instead , one still have the original Latex source and hence can make PDF files as well as HTML from the same source.

comment What parsers for (La)TeX mathematics exist outside of the TeX engines?
This seems to require node.js on the server? Does this mean one has to ask their ISP to install node.js software on the server for the pages to work? it was not clear. With mathjax, one can put the javascript code in own folder, or load it directly from the mathjax servers....

comment Nicely typesetting verbatim text
Could this code be made into a package to make it easy to use for users? as in \usepackage{plaintext} and have it be part of TexLive distribution? This would be very useful. thanks.

@DavidCarlisle because when I googled for a Latex package called \usepackage{almost_verbatim} I did not find any :)

comment Nicely typesetting verbatim text
Can you then not use \input{foo} and put the plain text inside foo.tex? You can't really have it both ways. It is either Verbatim or not ;)

comment How can I draw engineer dimensioning diagrams?
@Mark thanks for IPE hint. I never knew about it, it looks really nice and it allows one to entry direct Latex code on the image. That is good suggestion. Will learn it also.

comment How can I draw engineer dimensioning diagrams?
(It is not easy to type mathematical formulas in visio) I do this all the time, I also use Visio. like this: I open SW (scientific word) write my math in there, then select the math as_picture from SW, and paste it on VISIO. Here is an example image and another the math ofcourse will not be as good as native Latex code as with Tikz, but it is much easier to do and move the math around using the mouse, and one can resize it also ;)
