I know that many people use editing programs like MikTeX and TexWorks for TeX documents; these programs (and others like them) provide a pseudo-WYSIWIG (what you see is what you get) interface to TeX. I have not seen, however, any programs that are designed specifically for veiwing documents based on the TeX way.
Obviously, TeX is designed to produce output in a format of choice, but are there any document viewing programs that take TeX formated documents as input and display formated text?
I can see at least a few advantages to such a system:
- Dynamic zooming with appropriate
- default for viewing environment (e.g. fit to screen width)
- font adjustment
- line wrapping
- image resizing
- Hyperreferencing independant of PDF viewer capabilities
- Reduced memory requirement for document storage (important if implemented on mobile device)
Background: This question was prompted by questions about viewing TeX generated documents on a Kindle. My mother just got a Kindle and was asking me how I navigate through documents on it. Though I primarily use PDFs, hyperreferencing doesn't work on Kindle. It occured to me that a viewer that implemented TeX on a Kindle would be an interesting application.
