[l2h] Anything "new"?

Hi ...

Not sure if you received my message of a few minutes ago ...

I spoke with our Systems Manager ... the latex2html works on our
system ...

He instructed me to do the following:

1.  Get into the directory where the .tex file you wish to be converted 

2. Once in that particular directory ...

at prompt type:

latex2html {filename.tex}  (do not include the parens

it runs perfectly ...

and ...

by doing this conversion ... it creates a DIRECTORY (named after the file 
you just converted)

... to view the file


firefox directoryname/index.html

the directoryname above is the one that latex2html created ...

... note firefox is the name of our "viewer"

However, one drawback ... the html version is not too pretty ...

Systems person seems to think that converting the file into a .pdf
appears as was typeset ... no distortion of any kind ... and mentioned
that the .pdf file can be read by almost all systems world-wide ...

Anyway, I want to thank you for taking the time to answer my query.

Best regards,

Gerree :-)
