*Subject*: **DOCBOOK: inline numbered headwords**

Hi all, In order to 'recycle' some LaTeX formulae, should i use DBTeXMath [1] to embed those equations in my DocBook source files ? What do you think are currently 'the best' approaches ? Should i customize DocBook in order to deal with 'theorem', 'proposition', 'corollary', 'definition','demostration', 'observation' and related headwords ? There exists another DTDs more appropriate than DocBook ? Would you mind showing me some code examples ? How can i get autonumbering at those inline headwords ? I have in mind a traditional scheme, like this one [2]: Chapter 3 - Convex Hulls: Basic Algorithms Definition 3.1 - Given k distinct points ... p = a[1]p[1] + ... + a[k]p[k] (3.1) ... Definition 3.2 (The affine hull) - Given a subset L of ... Propositon 3.3 [McMullen-Shepard(1971)] - The convex hull ... Theorem 3.4 (Sorting is almost linear in time) - ... Proof. ... Corollari 3.5 - Consecutive ... ... Chapter 7 - Intersections ... Theorem 3.4 shows ... How can i get that a formal equation just appears as p = a[1]p[1] + ... + a[k]p[k] (3.1) instead of Equation 1 p = a[1]p[1] + ... + a[k]p[k] ? I have a 'Windows 2000' + 'Cygwin' environment [3]. I was stuck debating between MSWord - employed initially because its capacity of 'autonumbering' (SEQ field), 'cross-reference' (REF field), and 'easy-of-learning' - and LaTeX; but i heard that using DocBook and XML technologies could be an improvement. I am a novice. Any help will be welcome. [1] http://ricardo.ecn.wfu.edu/~cottrell/dbtexmath/ [2] 'Computational Geometry, an Introduction' F.P. Preparata, M.I. Shamos (1985) Ed. Springer-Verlag.
