Subject: LaTex to MathML


  I am trying to have a nice setup to be able to write math equation
within a docbook document. I found this old email (*), which looks
ideal. My team knows basic latex equation or at least this is easier
to write it by hand than a MathML one.
  However this old post does not mention the tool used to do the LaTex
to Math conversion. Could someone please recommend one ?

Thanks !
