comment Responsive design with LaTeX
@michal.h21 does the HTML output match the typography of the PDF output? The reason I want to go with TeX is the beautiful typography. Otherwise I would use HTML and CSS.

@Jubobs it doesn't have to be a single PDF, or a PDF at all for that matter. I'm asking if there is support for device-independent export/display in LaTeX.

comment Embed TeX as a typesetting system for an eBook reading application
This answers the question with a good example of what I want to do. Unfortunately there is no source code and not too many details about the implementation. At least it shows that it can be done.

I've tried ShareLaTeX and while it does provide rapid feedback through recompilation, it's not meant to be a eBook reader. What I want is more akin to the Kindle software, but open source (and if it doesn't exist maybe building it myself).

The Wikipedia article on TeX indicates it's intended to be public domain. At least the core. pdfTeX would not be necessary for a screen renderer.

What licensing issues are you referring to? I thought TeX is public domain.

Does the Knuth and Plass line breaking algorithm in Javascript handle things like kerning, ligatures, hyphenation and justification? Is it really comparable to the entirety of the original TeX source code?
