This appears to be an elaborate waste of binary bits.

Rather than make Mathematica do pagination right (and a few other
simple things), they made a new stand-alone LaTex derivative with no
computational capability.

MUCH of the content I'd likely put into Publicon, if I used it, would
originate in Mathematica. But conversion is a one-way street.

Note that Publicon doesn't support footnotes; something every word
processor does do, and something every technical document needs.

On the PLUS side, it's cheap--except in terms of the learning curve.
The online tour makes using it look very involved.
