and testing. This is much less effort then would have been
required to complete the original approach described below.

Your comments on this new design would be most welcome.

Previous Work

  The initial approach for pamphlet support in MathAction 
turned out to be much more complicated than expected and work
on this was delayed and subsquently abandoned.

The approach was to use Norman Ramsey's Latex to HTML [l2h]
noweave filter. This filter together with noweave, is able
to produce HTML files directly from noweb (pamphlet) files.
[l2h] is written in Icon - so over the last couple of days
I had to learn yet another language. Icon is quite tidy and
fast and apparently well suited language for this sort of
complex conversion. I have modified and extended [l2h] so that
inline and display math environments as well as the axiom,
aldor and reduce pseudo-environments are passed straight
through the conversion. Now that I understand Icon and
thanks to Norman's literate programming style, I have also
added some missing things needed my first set of test files.

The output of the modified l2h can then be given directly
to LatexWiki (or MathAction) as an HTML+LaTeX file. When
it is fully integrated into MathAction, the pamphlet file
itself will be stored and converted transparently using
noweave with the modified l2h filter when clicking Save.
