Right, due to a couple of bugs in the code, eLyXer 0.98 cannot run
with Python 2.4. This issue has been reported (by Sven, the Debian
packager) and solved in the latest git; additionally, a test has been
added so that I can detect these things before the next release. I
will send you an updated version, since this bug may bite you.

Ugly, I will try to solve it.

The institution is ignored right now, this is a simple matter of
changing the CSS.

I would need a sample for this issue.

eLyXer never scales images beyond their nominal resolution. A sample
would help showing what you mean.

Can you send me privately a sample document (maybe loremipsumized)?
