the new concept in the long run. What's the recommended procedure for doing
so? Any pointer?

Ciao, Michael.

converting latex->rst

Ciao, Michael.
I found the original python docs converter here:

Unfortunately it is very specific to the Python docs :)
I did try to run it on python-ldap .tex files and I was partially
It has produced a skeleton of the docs in the new format.
After couple of hours of manual conversion I got far enough to
see some results.

Whatever I did is definitely not in finished state but it could be a

Hello everybody, I managed to get formulas from docbook to latex using the db2latex stylesheets. I even managed to get those formulas into HTML via the dvi2bitmap program. The last obstacle is getting formulas into Word in an "easy" way. The best way would be a stylsheet that converts latex formulas to mathML. I know I ask for a lot but maybe someone has an even better idea. Any hints are welcome.
