comment Convert from historic LaTeX-based software called “The Publisher”
Lastly, this seems to be the basic help file for the program written in its own markup language. The last paragraph states "ArborText was founded in 1982 by David L. Rodgers, James J. Sterken, and Paul B. Grosso." The syntax looks to be something similar to XML; presumably it is not too hard to write a PanDoc parser to convert the mark-up to LaTeX or HTML + MathJax.

The software is apparently in a suite made by a company called ArborText: cs.rutgers.edu/~watrous/txt/681

Wow... the program dates to at least 1988. Here's a website from UBC in 1994 describing their local licensed copy: astro.ubc.ca/resources/Computing/WordProc/publisher.html

comment LaTeX 'Missing $' Cannot find the reason
Please post a minimal working example illustrating the error. In particular, include the necessary packages from your preamble for reproducing the error. In particular, how are you defining \vect{} or which packages are you loading that provides that command?

comment Typing the semidirect product symbol
The ams packages are distributed in several different families. Take a look at ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsmath/amsldoc.pdf and ftp.ams.org/pub/tex/doc/amsfonts/amsfndoc.pdf to see what the amsmath and amssymb packages contain.

comment How to smoothen an Asymptote plot
And in the interest of teaching a man to fish and all that: here's the online documentation. By specifying the function T you can even make the sampling not evenly spaced, if you know a priori where you need higher "resolution".

Please provide a minimum working example showing what you are doing now, and a description of how that differs from what you want to do. In particular, how are you building the glossary and acronym lists?
