XLingPaper’s use of TeX Technologies


XLingPaper is a plugin to XMLMind, an XML editor designed for publishers. XLingPaper does three things: 1) controls the user interface of a powerful tool only allowing valid document sections to be inserted into a document — 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, thesis, journal articles, edited volumes, etc. 3) it exports documents to a variety of formats, e.g, PDFs, ePUB, Open Office Writer, HTML. We describe XLingPaper’s development history and its dependencies on TeX packages for PDF creation.
