[Axiom-developer] AXIOM book and TeXmacs (was: Looking for beginning with axiom.)

TeXmacs does a pretty good job of importing TeX/LaTeX
into TeXmacs format (but not so good in the other
direction in the current version), so I think it should
be quite easy to put the AXIOM book into this format.
The tutorial files provided by Mike at NAG where in
LaTeX form with a few special tags. TeXmacs handled
the conversion very well. If you want me to give it
a try, just send me a few sample files.
Putting the LaTeX line breaker algorithm into Axiom
sounds fine. In fact it seems curious the Sutor chose
to do it in classic C code rather than in Axiom itself.
Although I have to admit that I find the way Axiom
generates LaTeX rather obscure! And for now improving
and maintaining the tm_axiom.c program seems much
I am also interested in David's idea of trying to
encorporate the HyperDoc browser function into the
TeXmacs - Axiom interface.
And of course then there is the graphics. TeXmacs can
accept and insert graphics generated by external programs
in postscript format. Can Axiom's graphics program
produce postscript output?
