XLingPaper’s use of TeX Technologies


XLingPaper is a plugin to XMLMind, an XML editor designed for publishers. We describe XLingPaper’s development history and its dependencies on TEX packages for PDF creation. XLingPaper does three things. 1) It controls the user interface of a powerful tool, only allowing valid document sections to be inserted into a document, thus reducing user friction in the document production process. 2) It provides a constrained number of document sections which are relevant in the production of linguistically-oriented publications, e.g., grammars, dissertations, theses, journal articles, edited volumes, etc. 3) It exports documents to a variety of formats, e.g., PDFs, ePUB, OpenOffice Writer, HTML.
