Hi Ralf,

my suggestion concerns only the (future) presentation of pamphlet files on the
mathaction wiki.

On the other hand, great that you are pointing out an aldor mode for emacs. If
this mode really supports pamphlet files, this would be pretty.

In an ideal world, the documentation of Aldor and Axiom will be done with the
same tool. It seems to me, that the pamphlet + mathaction wiki approach is
quite sophisticated.

Unfortunately it seems that quite some work has been done more than once. It
seems that aldoc and the pamphlet approach are quite similar. Maybe we could at
least reuse the aldoc latex class for Axiom...

why do you think that they might become unreadable?
