This paper describes a technique for implementing first-class continuations in languages that do not support stack inspection and manipulation. … This may result in better performance than CPS-conversion for those programs that make only occasional use of first-class continuations.
I’ve got a question:
I’m pretty interested in the TeXML project, and would consider helping in the development. Could you tell me how active the project is at the moment, and where you think it is heading / what remains to be done?
I noticed that my \parskip was ignored by the “minipage” environment. After some investigations I found that many vertical spacing commands have a special behaviour inside a minipage, and that the command “if@minipage” is used quite often.
Some of my longtables are wider than \hsize (=\columnwidth). It’s ok. The problem is the left-aligned captions of such tables. If a table is X too wide, then the caption is indented by X.
Automatic font selection scheme in LaTeX somethimes is not so good. For example, when series “n” (normal) and “bx” (extra bold) are defined for a font, and an user want “b” (bold), the system uses “n” font, not “bx” font.
Babel allows LaTeX to speak multiple languages. It also introduces shorthands, one- or two-character sequences, which help non-English authors to type language-specific letters easily. Unfortunately, this feature leads to problems when generating LaTeX-files automatically.
