I'm just starting on some projects, initially short, but potentially
becoming quite involved - basically, lecture notes and labs for a series
of grad courses. I don't expect my audience will include many Emacs
users, so pdf/html will be the primary output format. I know any
individual piece of the project can be easily converted from LaTeX to
Texinfo, but if it's not completely automated it's not likely to be
worth my time since the texinfo version will have an audience of 1 (me).
It may be easier to read the html output from tex4ht using w3m.el from
within Emacs, since I have some confidence that that process will
require minimal, if any, hand-correction on my part.

I will look into your suggestions though. Thanks for the tips.
