I've been trying for some time to find a way to get TeX to output
scalable PDFs that work within DocBook.

I finally worked out a rather kludgey route that works.
Equations in TeX or LaTeX can be included either as block
elements or as inlines.  It doesn't use MathML or SVG, and it
works fine with XEP.  Equations are scalable in the PDF output,
but rasterized in the HTML output.

This particular toolchain may be documented somewhere, but I
couldn't find it easily in one place.

The procedure is described here:


This is a section of the documentation for our local DocBook
toolchain.  That documentation starts here:
