Roger,

I have actually started using Publicon as my principal tool for
publication and it has gone well. The main drawback is that Mathematica
and Publicon are not seamlessly integrated. It would be ideal for my
situation if Publicon was an add-on to Mathematica rather than a
separate package. In the end the issue is resolved by the fact that I
have moved from developing directly in Mathematica to using Workbench
(Eclipse) for writing Mathematica code, and then doing all my
documentation in Publicon. I print to PDF with Adobe Distiller. I also
would appreciate more templates for Publicon, or maybe a forum for
exchanging them. I Have modified the American Mathematica Association
template for submission to AEA, the American Economics Association.

Hello MathGroup:

Thanks for this info Larry.

I think what I wanted to type before was TeXSave (now obsolete
replaced with Export[..."TeX"]).

I know that ther are a few books that were mostly "formatted" in
Mathematica (the Navigator book & the MathStatica book come to mind).
And most of the publishing threads here talk about exporting to EPS
then to LaTeX or exporting MathML.

So, I would like to know:

Has anyone successfully converted a full Mathematica notebook using
Export[]
or File-->SaveAs--> (name).tex and then pushed it over to a TeX
implmentation (e.g. LyX) and had this "look correct"?

Thanks in advance.

Regards..
