Publisher Comments:

Published Jun 10, 1999 by Addison-Wesley Professional. Part of the Tools and Techniques for Computer Typesetting series. The series editor may be contacted at frank.mittelbach@latex-project.org. This book shows how you can publish LaTeX documents on the Web. LaTeX was born of the scientist's need to prepare well-formatted information, particularly with pictures and mathematics included; the Web was born of the scientist's need to communicate information electronically. Until now, it has been difficult to find solutions that address both needs. HTML and today's Web browsers deal inadequately with the nontextual components of scientific documents. This book, at last, describes tools and techniques for transforming LaTeX sources into Web formats for electronic publication, and for transforming Web sources into LaTeX documents for optimal printing.

You will learn how to:

  • Make full use of Acrobat with LaTeX
  • Convert existing documents to HTML or XML
  • Use mathematics in Web applications
  • Use LaTeX to prepare Web pages
  • Read and write simple XML/SGML
  • Produce high-quality printed pages from Web-hosted XML or HTML pages

You will find practical descriptions of:

  • LaTeX2HTML, which uses Perl to interpret LaTeX source and generate HTML
  • TeX4ht, which redefines LaTeX's macros to generate HTML or XML
  • Browser plugins, such as techexplorer, that are able to interpret mathematical markup directly
  • Tools for authoring and interpreting XML
  • Tools for translating XML into various output formats, using Cascading Style Sheets, DSSSL, or XSL
  • Mathematical Markup Language (MathML)

In addition to giving the Internet location of the software described in this book, the authors also provide a full, annotated catalogue of URLs for the standards and documentation relating to this fast-moving area.

Many of the packages and programs described in this book are freely available in public software archives, and the source code for examples has been placed on CTAN, the TeX archives.

Includes a glossary.

Synopsis:

Despite the fact that the web was born of the need for scientists to communicate, the publication of material with mathematical and scientific notation has been problematic in this medium. This book describes how LaTeX and other available tools can solve this problem, explaining techniques that allow beautifully-formatted technical text to be published on the web.

Written for those already familiar with LaTeX, the book shows how LaTeX can provide new opportunities for elegant scientific publication on the web. It presents such topics as PDF, tools for converting LaTeX to HTML, and methods for using LaTeX to create web fragments.

In addition, the book covers non-LaTeX solutions to mathematical formatting on the web, and describes converting LaTeX to such scripting tools as XML, SGML, and the new MathML. Using the techniques in this book, scientists and mathematicians will be able to publish their material on the web exactly as it should appear.
