Hi Gour, this feature makes ConTeXt much superior than LaTeX, but not all TeX users are aware of this jewel. > AsciiDoc can convert to e.g. DocBook(5), but I wonder if/how ConTeXt > could handle it? Sure it can handle it, but I wonder whether this would make sense. (I mean, does DocBook handle slides?) HTML is XML too. So, you might use a intermediate format such as HTML. > I’ve found something: > http://doctribute.com/blog/003-docbook-to-context-xsl-stylesheets-en.html > but this involves fiddling with XSL stylesheets, while Pandoc’s > covnersion from DocBook to ConTexT eliminates need for them. My personal experience/experiment is http://www.from-pandoc-to-context.tk. It shows that I still have to learn a lot of ConTeXt ;-). But this approach allows me to generate (with pandoc) PDF and ePub documents from exactly the same source. I only need to write the style files for each. I use this approach for books, such as http://www.un-solo-origen.tk (sorry, it’s in Spanish). Actually, the problem with pandoc is that it has to deal with XML with the LaTeX input format. I mean, this is crazy. > Another option would be to just bite the bullet and learn ConTeXt > properly to be use for *all* serious writings which makes sense if I > consider that I *might* need to produce one presentation every 2 weeks > which is more the one hundred per year. :-O ConTeXt XML input will afford you the markup, but you’ll have to know how to deal with the slides in ConTeXt :-). > In that case it would be nice to have bette/more support in my (Emacs) > editor, but that’s another topic for another thread after I did discover > related thread in AUCTeX list today. ;) Sorry, but the issue about editors is beyond my knowledge. I use geany and I’m fine with it. But I’m only an average computer user.
