Yes. Not very general purpose though is it? Writing in \tex and mathml then using external programs. I'd like a 'one off' call, which takes docbook + embedded mathml (namespaced) and produces PDF for say, 80% of input. With math and its history, I guess there will always be some 'tweaking' wanted by some users. I'm assuming that docbook => html with embedded mathl is another route. regards -- Dave Pawson XSLT XSL-FO FAQ. http://www.dpawson.co.uk
