Is there a way to convert my Mathematica 4.0 Notebook into native
LaTeX?  I am aware that Mathematica has an export feature, but sadly
this feature requires virtual fonts and Mathametica specific packages
and macros.  Even doing a simple //TexForm on my formula cells yeilds
a TeX expression that is dependent on those Mathematica
packagees/macros.  What I would like to do is to export a notebook to
strait LaTeX without the dependency on notebook2e.sty...

I don't think it should be a complicated task.  The
title/section/subsection/equation formatting of a LaTex document and a
Mathematica Notebook are almost identical.  I understand that I would
lose the fonts that Mathematica uses, but I think alot of flexibility
would be gained.

I've also tried to save the notebook as MathML and convert it to TeX
from there using Jade, but this solution is incomplete.  I am
currently running Mathematica under Windows and use MikTeX, though I
have a Linux Box around as well.

If you know an easy way to convert a mathematica notebook into
straight LaTeX, I would be very grateful if you would pass on your
