Subject: Hevea new release

It is my pleasure to anounce the new release of HEVEA.

      This is HEVEA, version 1.04, a fast LaTeX to HTML translator.

    HEVEA is a LaTeX to HTML translator. The input language is a fairly
    complete subset of LaTeX2e (old LaTeX style is also accepted) and the
    output language is HTML that is (hopefully) correct with respect to
    version 4.0 (transitional)

    With respect to previous version 1.03, the most salient changes
    comcern the nature of output:
       - Hevea now generates HTML 4.0- transitional. This does not
       change much, essentially FACE=symbol is now standard...

       - There are two new output formats : plain text and info files.
       Thus, one can generate plain text versions of software manuals
       from LaTeX source code.

       - An experimental (very experimental) MathML mode is included
         in the released version.

     A few bugs are corrected, the most important ones are:
       - The alltt environment should now work properly
       - Environment names now can includes figures (\begin{list1}
       ... \end{list1} is now valid).
    Exotic symbols are translated into symbols
    pertaining to the symbol font of the HTML browser, using the
    now standard FACE attribute of the FONT tag.
    This allows the translation to HTML of quite a lot of the symbols
    used in LaTeX.

    HEVEA understands LaTeX macro definitions. Simple user style
    files are understood with little or no modifications.
    Furthermore, HEVEA customization is done by writing LaTeX code.
    HEVEA is written in Objective Caml, as many lexers. It is quite fast
    and flexible. Using HEVEA it is possible to translate large documents
    such as manuals, books, etc. very quickly. All documents are
    translated as one single HTML file. Then, the output file can be cut
    into smaller files, using the companion program HACHA.

    distribution: ftp://ftp.inria.fr/INRIA/Projects/para/hevea

    On-line documentation is available at
    The first sections explain how to use hevea.

    To compile HEVEA, you need Objective Caml (version 2.00 or more), see
    However, there exists a Linux PC Red-Hat 5.2 binary distribution.
