As plasTeX parses a LaTeX document, it creates document data and keeps track of
the original source. This means that, after parsing, plasTeX has two ways to access
each document element: as part of the document data or as the LaTeX source
from which the element came. This is important when dealing with equations or
picture environments that might not have corresponding markup in the output
format (HTML, for example).
plasTeX uses an imager (dvipng by default) to create images of document
elements that cannot be produced otherwise. Several imagers are available in
plasTeX; any program that can be used to convert LaTeX math into an output
format can be used.
When plasTeX converts LaTeX to DocBook XML, both the image and the LaTeX
source are used in the ﬁnal document. See section2.2 for an example.
1.3 Languages and Encoding Support
plasTeX comes bundled with translated terms for document elements in the fol-
lowing languages: Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portugese, and Spanish. It
also includes three variants of English: American, Australian, and British.
You can use your own translated terms by specifying a local translation ﬁle.
These custom terms are substituted into the output document during the render-
