Martin (and others);

I have started to document the work I am doing to implement
full Axiom pamphlet file support on MathAction. I hope to
have an test version of this extension available before the

There are few more notes and some examples here:

My approach is to use Norman Ramsey's Latex to HTML (l2h)
noweave filter. This filter together with noweave, is able
to produce HTML files directly from noweb (pamphlet) files.
l2h is written in Icon - so over the last couple of days
I had to learn yet another language. Icon is quite a tidy
fast and apparently well suited language for this sort of
complex conversion. I have modified and extended l2h  so that
inline and display math environments as well as the axiom,
aldor and reduce pseudo-environments are passed straight
through the conversion. Now that I understand Icon and
thanks to Norman's literate programming style, I have also
added some missing things needed my first set of test files.

The output of the modified l2h can then be given directly
to LatexWiki (or MathAction) as an HTML+LaTeX file. When
it is fully integrated into MathAction, the pamphlet file
itself will be stored and converted transparently using
noweave with the modified l2h filter when clicking Save.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
It will help motivate me to complete this work... :)

Bill Page.
