    Amazing work! I have your rss page in my favorities. This periodic talbe is very useful for to learn tikz code.

    thanks

  • #6 Kjell Magne Fauske, January 13, 2010 at 10:11 a.m.

    Update: The example now works with both pdf(la)tex and latex.

    The Spanish version of this work may be downloaded from:

    http://www.aprendematematicas.org/latex.html#Muestras

    I had three versions of the Periodic Table in the website, but this one is much better than those I had. That's why I decided to translate it into Spanish and share it.

    Thanks for sharing your excellent work.

    I think this is a great periodic table, however Fluorine and Cesium are misspelled. Thanks for doing all the hard work for me!

    Hi. I have a problem: I can compile the singele tex-file useing pdflatex and the resault is beutiful. But when trying to put the code in my (quite large) document, I only got errors.

    I have a rather large preamble and I suspect package conflickt. Does anyone know if there is any conflicts/issues between the (ifpdf, tikz, preview, shapes and calc) packages and other packages?

    Don't mind the above.

    I have a working norwegian translation redy. If anyone need it, make contact.

    Element number 72 is actually called 'Hafnium', not 'Halfnium'. Nice work by the way.
