Sage: Ticket #8472: add %xelatex to notebook
https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/8472
<p>
In <a class="ext-link" href="http://groups.google.com/group/sage-support/browse_thread/thread/bbb437ab04ff64d"><span class="icon"></span>this sage-support thread</a>, there is a request for something like this to work in the notebook:
</p>
<pre class="wiki">%xelatex
실수 $x$에 대해서 다음이 성립한다.
\[
\sqrt{x^2}=|x|
\]
</pre><p>
<a class="ext-link" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XeTeX"><span class="icon"></span>XeTeX</a> is an extension of TeX that makes working with arbitrary fonts very easy. In practice, this means that users of non-European languages can simply set a font that supports their writing system, type their document, and everything just works.
</p>
<p>
Adding support for this would be useful to anyone who uses both Sage and non-European languages.
</p>
<p>
Note that it will be necessary for most users to use a function corresponding to <code>latex.add_to_preamble()</code>, since XeTeX by default uses the Computer Modern fonts and for non-trivial uses, one needs to tell XeTeX what font to use. Also, XeTeX produces PDFs by default, so it will be necessary to use something other than <code>dvipng</code> to get something that we can display in the notebook.
