Interested in web standards, semantics, communication, history of science, and the - uh - universe...

Increasingly disillusioned by Stack Overflow and the rest of the Stack Exchange system, for reasons overlapping those articulated here by Michael Richter and here* by Benjamin Mako Hill.

*Stack Exchange sites are worse than GitHub in this respect.

comment Is it possible to use the `verbatim` environment in a dot2tex node?
Interesting. I can't find the example you gave in the dot2tex documentation, nor in the repo. man dot2tex doesn't work for me - although I used easy_install, so wasn't expecting it to work - but I can't see any documentation in the latest ZIP file either (dot2tex-2.8.7.zip) that includes your example. Please could you tell me more about where you found that explanation? Thanks.

comment Automatically avoid more than one node when drawing a path
I'd thought the link to the answer to your previous question would have been enough, but I've now expanded the answer along the lines you suggested. No harm in extra clarity :)

comment Automatically avoid more than one node when drawing a path
Well, it kind of happens "automagically". By default, dot2tex invokes GraphViz's dot command, which uses an approach (described here) that is quite successful at avoiding cases of edges overlapping nodes.
