I know latex, but new in xslt (learning now), I need to convert the tex to xml file through XSLT (one of my friend suggest, but i failed to convert). Please suggest or give example to convert the files.

    xslt is a language designed for the other direction, it can read xml it can't read a latex file in any useful way. use a convertor such as latexml or tex4ht to generate xml from latex Nov 16, 2023 at 9:11

XSLT is a language designed to take XML as input so is not that useful to read latex files although it would be useful to convert an intitial xml conversion to whatever specific xml format you need.

A simple example would be to use make4ht to generate xhtml formatted XML.

So, using the standard latex example document small2e.tex which is in the base distribution so you can use

pdflatex small2e

which makes a small2e.pdf

enter image description here


make4ht -f xhtml small2e

which makes an xml file small2e.html which displays in a browser as

enter image description here

Or could be used as the input to an XSLT transformation to convert to a different xml format.
