```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',
There exists another DTDs more appropriate than
DocBook ?
Would you mind showing me some code examples ?

How can i get autonumbering at those inline
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)
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.
