Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: DocBook and TeX/LaTeX


just coming back from the DANTE (German TeX Users Group) 2002 Meeting I
have IMO some interesting news:

- an approach to map DocBook XML elements to LaTeX code might be 
  "xmltex" from David Carlisle dating back to 02/2000.
  The infrastructure to map *any* XML element/attribute names to 
  TeX/LaTeX code is already setup and all what has to be done is
  to create a map file.
  I don't know whether any work has already been done to create 
  such a map file and will look/search for more information.
  "xmltex" should should be available for any up-to-date TeX installation.
  o http://www.dcarlisle.demon.co.uk/xmltex/
  o ftp://ftp.dante.de/tex-archive/macros/xmltex/base/manual.html

- there is ongoing work in the "ConTeXt" community to create a similar
  solution like "xmltex" for "ConTeXt". Very recent beta versions of 
  "ConTeXt" are able to read and parse any XML document and map XML
  element names to ConText code. 
  Hans Hagen, the creator of ConTeXt, is sure to have a working
  solution for DocBook/ConTeXt in the very near future.
  I will contact Simon Pepping from the Dutch TeX Users Group, who 
  is more or less coordinating this work to get more information.
