The original setup was: PythonOutputFilter htmlatex HTMLATEX AddOutputFilter HTMLATEX .html HTML files with latex worked fine. The symptoms stayed the same after bouncing the server so it probably wasn't some quirk. A plain old HTML file (http://www.meangrape.com/htmlatex/index.html for instance) caused the following error: [error] [client 22.214.171.124] htmlatex htmlatex: Traceback (most recent call last):, referer: http://www.meangrape.com/ [error] [client 126.96.36.199] htmlatex htmlatex: File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/mod_python/apache.py", line 187, in FilterDispatch\n object(filter), referer: http://www.meangrape.com/ [error] [client 188.8.131.52] htmlatex htmlatex: File "/var/www/python/htmlatex/htmlatex.py", line 107, in outputfilter\n filter.write(main(temp_doc)), referer: http://www.meangrape.com/ [error] [client 184.108.40.206] htmlatex htmlatex: TypeError: Argument to write() must be a string, referer: http://www.meangrape.com/ The applicable code is: if not hasattr(filter.req,'temp_doc'): filter.req.temp_doc =  # If content-length ended up wrong, Gecko browsers truncated # data if "Content-Length" in filter.req.headers_out: del filter.req.headers_out["Content-Length"] temp_doc = filter.req.temp_doc s = filter.read() while s: temp_doc.append(s) s = filter.read() if s is None: temp_doc = ''.join(temp_doc) --> filter.write(main(temp_doc)) filter.close() I'm quite inclined to believe that I've something misconfigured, or my code is weak. I highly doubt that it's a mod_python problem per se. Jay.
