Re: [BKARTS] LaTeX [was: How to print the same ...]



LaTeX is an application of the typesetting language TeX. It is free, and like TeX, can do some amazing typographical

The reason why it may be useful for the project under discussion is that unlike WYSIWYG programs (InDesign), LaTeX is a markup language that can be presented in multiple formats as needed. Its similar to how CSS works-- the content is separate from the formatting so that the style information can be reinterpreted for each new presentation medium, in this case, two different book sizes.

You might also look into DocBook, another open source tool that helps manage the layout of books that may need to be presented in several different presentation media.
