Apparently mailing lists aren't working yet.  I never got a confirmation
request for my subscription request, I'm not getting any messages through
`help-texinfo', and I haven't been able to access the archives for any GNU
mailing lists.

I agree.

If I ever get a chance, I'll try to do this.

Thanks for the references.  `tex4ht' and `tex2page' look interesting.  I like
the LISP connection with respect to the latter.   As I a non-LaTeX user, the
others aren't so interesting to me.  However, my main concern at the moment is
rewriting the Texinfo manual for 3DLDF.

It would be nice to be able to generate math that's not in the form of images.
 I definitely won't be looking into this for the version of my manual that I'm
working on now, though.

This is another thing that will have to wait, along with other major tasks,
such as learning to use `libtool'.
