This is what tbook can do so far:
- An XML DTD that is suitable for demanding, especially
scientific, texts, but it is also as simple and small as possible, and
uses similar names as LaTeX. Supported text classes: book, article,
- It produces HTML, XHTML+MathML, Postscript, PDF, and DocBook
- It works with formulae, graphics, tables, (all three with
numbering) bibliography, and index. Tools that have proven their
efficiency with LaTeX (BibTeX, xindy etc.) are also usable
- The print output caters high typographic demands, using high
level LaTeX typesetting mechanisms. This includes neat graphics and
their labelling with Psfrag. Additionally, it produces small PDFs.
- It is easily configurable. For LaTeX via a user package file,
for HTML via a CSS fragment, and there are yet other ways.
- As much as possible is done automatically, e.g. via shell
scripts that are synchronised with the document continually.
- It works with different languages and allows for direct unicode
input. Supported languages so far: English, German, French, Italian,
Spanish, Catalan, Danish, Dutch, Polish, Swedish, Norwegian, Portuguese,
Brazilian, Finnish, and Russian.
- It is possible to input XML code directly without being killed
by tons of characters. (That counts twice for formulae.)
- It's a real life tool, no academic project. If it doesn't work
properly for you, complain!
