Thank you Mark, for the explanation. I was interested in Publicon, because I
thought I could use it as a tool to generate a document that can then be
"exported" as both LaTeX and XML. I am in trial mode right now anyway and I
can edit the stylesheet or perhaps generate one of my own based on theirs.
