LaTeX ... interesting. It is a pure notation without semantics. That is, it is a notation whose semantics *is* notation. Although mathematical expressions (which Latex is all about) have tree structure (like MathML does, and is excessively wordy), for the most part latex represents mathematics as just a symbol cluster. It does have some nesting, indicated by special brackets, for when the layout itself needs two-dimensions. That said, it doesn't even have a stable syntax. I tried to find a grammar for parsing LaTeX, and discovered there is none. It seems LaTeX's macros do the parsing, and they're a Turing-complete laanguage. It makes me appreciate Scribble. -- hendrik -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Racket Users" group.
