comment Is it possible produce .djvu files from LaTeX directly?
@Emre Djvu uses JB2, which is apparently similar to JBIG2 for one of its compression layers. It is also supported by the Internet Archive's Million Books project, so it isn't totally dead.

@JonathanBaldwin Yes, but if you are just stripping the images and text out then you wouldn't be executing any javascript anyway.

comment Emergency crash course on LaTeX
@Alexander He doesn't need to make it compile: Just give me the changes to the text and then I can recompile and make it look good. In Word he would just be adding comments and using track changes, not reformatting it for me.

I'm not using CM. Is there an easy way to play with this for other fonts?

@percusse But fonts are designed to be printed at a specific size, and changes are made to the font when moving from 10pt to 12pt; it isn't just a rescale on a good font, there are actual changes.
