        No, this is because I forgot to include it. You may use \\ instead.

        Please check your locale settings. Unless `locale charmap` says "UTF-8", BrightMaRe will fall back to ASCII. Alternatively, you may use --utf8 option to force UTF-8 output.

        Very cool
        Great idea, cool project.

        Just played around with it a little bit... have a few suggestions/comments:

        1) It doesn't seem to handle \newline. Maybe this is because it's intended to handle only math environment formatting?

        2)

        ./brightmare '\gimel \gamma \daleth' > test00

        ./brightmare-html '\gimel \gamma \daleth' > test00.html

        The latter file contains HTML entities such as ℷ and looks correct in a browser. However, the text file test00 does not. When I run it, I get:

        cat test00 ->

        gimel g dalet

        hexdump test00 ->

        0000000 6967 656d 206c 2067 6164 656c 0a74 000a

        000000f

        Viewing it in a browser also displays the text "gimel g dalet" rather than Unicode characters.

        Overall this project looks very cool and useful and I look forward to seeing more from it.
