Agreed. But what if I'm writing a paper for a scientific journal in latex on my freebsd and my coauthors just can't be persuaded to use anything that's not already exist on their windows PCs? I find the results of latex2html or latex2rtf of poor quality (even for editing purposes), i.e. lots of errors, problems with references, etc. Maybe I need to learn how to use these tools better. Lately I was sending them pdfs and got in reply some pdfs that can only be viewed properly with the latest acrobat, and their comments are only visible on the screen anyway and cannot at all be printed. So what do I do? More broadly, what is the solution for cross- platform (*nix - windows - vms) editing of a complex document, with lots of maths, line plots and raster images? anton _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
