## [Texmacs-dev] Improvements in LaTeX -> TeXmacs conversion

Hi,

I hacked a bit the LaTeX -> TeXmacs converter
in order to get presentable versions of Alvaro's texts.
In TeXmacs 1.0.0.5 this should work reasonably well,
even though a complete rewriting of the filter
remains necessary.

I also found many things in the texts which are
semantically incorrect (from the typesetting point of view).
For instance, you often type formulas like

$$\Bbb R^2$$

This means that the exponent 2 is also in blackboard bold!
Of course, it should not be surprising that formulas of
this kind are not converted in the right way.
In a similar way, the text "pertenece" in

$$Sl(n;R)=\left\{ A\, pertenece\, Gl(n;R)/\det A=+1\right\}$$

will be interpreted as a formula p*e*r*t*e*n*e*c*e*.
Another thing which is quite ugly is the systematic use
of descriptions for entering theorems, definitions,
proofs and so on; of course, you should use the appropriate
environments for these, and possibly write a corresponding
style file.

What does "puta mierda" mean? It is a recurrent theme in your texts.
