Hi Roger,

Please see my responses below.

Yes, if you are only trying to produce LaTeX formats that are  
supported by Publicon. However, Publicon is neither a TeX editor nor  
viewer. TeX is merely a document export format, and you may, at some  
point, need to edit the TeX output directly for publication (to  
finesse page breaks for example).

No, TeXForm[] is used primarily for converting mathematical  
expressions one-by-one. If you want to export an entire document, you  
must use LaTeX export.

Publicon is currently incompatible with these new active elements,  
they would have to be converted to static objects or graphics.
