I can also foresee problems with interleaving two documents, but I will
take some complexity over duplication any day. However, your approach
with named elements and reusable functions does appeal to me.

What is the mechanism you use to select the subtrees that you are
exporting? Are you employing SELECT_TAGS or something else?

Great tip, thanks.

I am in the process of starting to write a new section, so I will try it
out. For equations etc. it would also be possible to define LaTeX macros
for reuse.

Thanks a lot!
