Engineer with a penchant for nasty hacks in Matlab and LaTeX once the frustration gets too much. Slowly learning R as well.

comment Creating a Combined Table of Contents for Multiple LaTeX Documents
If you make a main document that calls all of the components of those other files (using includes and inputs), doesn't that work? I guess this is another way of me asking: "what did you try, what happened, and what did you want to have happen?"...

comment How can I use latex2rtf with biblatex?
I've had no problems using natbib with bibtex. Just get a document that compiles and the conversion with latex2rtf works fine.

comment How can one validate a bib file?
Bibdesk is pretty good. Tools for most of the above and a PDF preview which helps find dodgy tex.

comment Revisiting producing structured PDFs from LaTeX
@ppr: Hyperref gives me some of what I need, but I would need to build a framework to use hyperref to then construct the document structure. I think there are other options that might be simpler, which is what I would like to find.

comment LaTeX accessibility
@AndrewStacey Sorry you though that was taking it completely out of context. I've removed my comment as it probably was too chatty. To clarify: even if the audience is familiar with 'tex and that might be considered a reasonable way of providing an automated alt-text to an equation, I think there is very much a need for an author to actively set the alt text and make it appropriate. There will be times when alt text can be a textual description of the equation, and there will be times when the alt text needs to be a complex equation in MathML. That should be part of the author's role.
