I have used Publicon for the past year and have produced camera-ready  
symposium papers with it.  It has been a pleasure to use for that  
purpose.  For publications requiring  translation to Latex (journals,  
books, etc.), it is quite another story.  My attempts at using the  
APS format (RevTex4)  and translating to Latex have been totally  
unacceptable to me.  It appears Publicon cannot even translate  
boldface math in a reasonable way.  For example, if I want to use a  
boldface version of r to represent a position vector  in an equation,  
Publicon uses \text{\boldmath $r$}.  I am willing to do minor fixes  on the  
Publicon translation to Latex but not the wholesale redo that seems  
to be necessary right now.  I have sent my complaint to Wolfram, but  
have not yet gotten a reply.   My impression is that the present  
version of  Publicon ( is not useful as a front end for  
manuscripts that have to end up as Latex.   I would be interested in  
hearing the experiences of other Publicon users  with regard to  
translation to Latex.
