Re: Mathematica NB file to LaTeX for publication?

For conversion of a Mathematica notebook to a LaTeX source file, you 
must first answer the question: what is the LaTeX equivalent of a 
Mathematica notebook cell?

In situations such as you suggest, a more viable alternative of course 
might be to write the paper in LaTeX, to do calculations and construct 
graphics, etc., in Mathematica, then export. Probably this is what 
you're doing.

While Mathematica users might wish for a world where the notebook were 
the medium of information exchange, let's face it: today in mathematics 
and allied fields, the medium is the LaTeX document (or perhaps the pdf 
document created from it).
