Although Mathematica can save notebooks in LaTeX format, the output is not
standard LaTeX. As it uses special macros and fonts, the output is not
compatible with LaTeX editors such as Scientific Workplace. (It also tends
to be incompatible with coauthors.)

A couple of years ago I modified the TeXConvert package for Mathematica 4.1
to generate standard LaTeX.  The modified package works fine with 4.1, but
unfortunately Wolfram has changed TeXSave in 5.0. Faced with repeating my
hack with 5.0, I thought I would first check if anyone else has a LaTeX
conversion package. 

Given that Mathematica now can generate XML, it should be possible to
generate standard LaTeX via DocBook. Does anybody know of an XSTL to
transform SymbolicXML to DocBook? The possibility of doing this
transformation is described in:

but Wolfram does not have (or know of) such an XSLT file.
