Your example is not beginner's tutorial at all!  Nor is it something
that the manual can cover.  For esoteric/specific needs like this
"advanced tutorials" are more appropriate.

Now to answer your question, I have seen people mention htmlize.el from
contrib for something like this.  To integrate with LaTeX, you should be
able work out a solution with some dvipng magic.  If memory serves me
right, there was a post from Eric[1] mentioning how to use htmlize from
gnus, and a thread on dvipng in the last month.  Those might help you.

As for Carsten's suggestion.  I agree completely.  It's a jungle of
tutorials, I myself get confused on that page.  I'll try to come-up with
a shortlist of beginner tutorials in a few days.
