I'm a software person who has been tasked with moving a few thousand pages of documentation for a piece of legacy software online. The documentation is all in Adobe Framemaker and yes, there are lots of equations. The Framemaker HTML output is ugly and I'm thinking that moving everything to LaTeX would be painful but worth the effort because a) I and other people know it, b) it looks good, and c) it's flexible.
Please weigh in on:
Is this plan crazy? I'm not a technical writer and I don't want to misjudge the magnitude of this.
Are there any Framemaker conversion tools out there? Right now I'm thinking of saving the .fm docs in HTML and using Pandoc to convert to LaTeX. Does anyone have experience with any part of this?
Any advice about the equations?
