[XeTeX] Polyglossia problem

Hello Nicolas,


That is the version of polyglossia that I used when I tested your minimal example with the nolocalmarks option. It is also the version that I use for my own documents.


Page 4 of the polyglossia manual explains that the nolocalmarks option prevents the package from redefining the internal \markboth and \markright macros. If you set a language option in polyglossia, then the package redefines those two macros. Using the nolocalmarks option prevents this, and so is one way to get the result you are after.


Kind regards,

I did the test with the latest version of polyglossia (1.0.2), and I noticed that to typeset correctly the page headers, I need the nolocalmarks option.
Does Fr. Michael ---or anybody else who is testing this issue--- has got the same result?
Best wishes,

Yes, I will look more closely into this, in any case. Thanks for reporting.


Well, I've now installed the latest version of polyglossia and the problem has disappeared.

Thanks to all.
