tex.math.in.alt
TeX notation used for equations
Description
If you want type math directly in TeX notation in equations,
this parameter specifies notation used. Currently are supported two
values -- plain and latex. Empty
value means that you are not using TeX math at all.
Preferred way for including TeX alternative of math is inside of
textobject element. Eg.:
<inlineequation>
<inlinemediaobject>
<imageobject>
<imagedata fileref="eq1.gif"/>
</imageobject>
<textobject><phrase>E=mc squared</phrase></textobject>
<textobject role="tex"><phrase>E=mc^2</phrase></textobject>
</inlinemediaobject>
</inlineequation>
If you are using graphic element, you can
store TeX inside alt element:
<inlineequation>
<alt role="tex">a^2+b^2=c^2</alt>
<graphic fileref="a2b2c2.gif"/>
</inlineequation>
If you want use this feature, you should process your FO with
PassiveTeX, which only supports TeX math notation. When calling
stylsheet, don't forget to specify also
passivetex.extensions=1.
If you want equations in HTML, just process generated file
tex-math-equations.tex by TeX or LaTeX. Then run
dvi2bitmap program on result DVI file. You will get images for
equations in your document.
This feature is useful for print/PDF output only if you
use the obsolete and now unsupported PassiveTeX XSL-FO
engine.
