Genre: Computers

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 [email protected] 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. 0201433117B04062001

Release Date: 1998
Genre: Computers

LaTeX is the premier software system used for presenting scientific and technical information on the printed page, being the system of choice for writers in mathematics, the sciences, computer science, and engineering. It is also increasingly used by nontechnical writers interested in superior printing and document presentation. Authors wishing to take full advantage of this powerful software often have questions that go beyond how to use the basic style files or commands. For example, how can you integrate any of the high quality commercial fonts that are available? How can you typeset mathematics in anything other than the original TeX fonts? How can you generate complex graphics for use in a LaTeX document? What Internet resources are available to a LaTeX author? How can you connect TeX and LaTeX to everyday office software? In general, writers need clear, accurate, and concise instructions, solutions, and explanations for common problems and situations. This unique book provides this assistance, containing many examples and summaries of procedures to follow. TeX Unbound will be the reference of choice for every writer wishing to express technical information.

When TeX was originally developed, graphics capabilities were not a major concern. As a result TeX itself provides only basic graphics support, and while the introduction of LaTeX improved matters, something more was needed. PSTricks addresses this by providing a very wide range of graphics facilities - from simple lines and curves, to 3D images, trees, knots, and charts, etc., with support for transformations, overlays and more - to form a complete graphics environment. This book is a comprehenseive reference guide to PSTricks. It contains hundreds of examples (64 pages in colour), with the source code available online. Intended audience -Mathematicians, engineers, scientists, statisticians & economists -Graphic artists -College staff and students -Book and journal publishers
