        If you're going to introduce an extra step in there (LaTeX),
as opposed to using XSL-FO's and something like FOP
(<>), then why go with LaTeX instead of
HTML? I wouldn't expect the output to be all that much better in
this case, would you?

        And if you're going LaTeX, are you using pdfTeX or something else?

        Too many steps, IMHO...
