My first attempt at translating a Publicon document into LaTeX and
printing the result was a bit of a disaster.
I tried the supplied file DefaultSample.nb, saving it to LaTeX.
First I tried to use Y&Y LaTeX to process this, but it choked on .tfm's
it couldn't find.
Second I tried MiKTeX. At least LaTeX processed to the end of the
document. But:
(1) There was no \maketitle in the generated LaTeX, so no title appeared!
(2) None of the .ps files (originating from the \includegraphics
commands) rendered in the Yap viewer and none printed. (See below for
the Yap report.)
(3) The wide math display (4) was horribly translated into LaTeX as just
an equation environment, whereas some sort of amsmath structure was
clearly required in order to keep the long lines from wandering
off-screen and off-paper to the right. I suppose this is more than one
can ask at present from such a translater -- that here the burden should
fall upon the author of the Publicon notebook, but then this might mean
considerable manual intervention into the LaTeX markup, and that in turn
vitiates some of the purpose of using Publicon to produce TeX.
Here's the report I got about the (first?) PostScript special include
not being able to be rendered:
