mtex2html - translate mtex(7) files to HTML format




mtex2html is a filter that reads a file in mtex(7) format from its standard input, and writes an HTML (HyperText Markup Language) file to standard output suitable for viewing with World-Wide Web browsers like Netscape(1), Mosaic(1), or lynx(1).

mtex2html is written entirely in LIM (see lim(1)).

Special Characters

There are three special characters for the HTML output format. Here are the characters and the strings they are translated to by mtex2html(1):

"<" becomes "&lt;"
">" becomes "&gt;"
"&" becomes "&amp;"

To prevent these characters from being translated within the scope of an html environment, you must escape them with a \ (backslash) character.


See the Diagnostics section of the mtex(7) manpage for a complete description.
