       blahtexml - Converts TeX equations into MathML

       blahtexml [options] files...

       This manual page documents briefly the blahtexml command.

       blahtexml converts an equation given in a syntax close to TeX into
       MathML. Blahtexml is a simple extension of blahtex. In addition to the
       functionality of blahtex, blahtexml has XML processing in mind and is
       able to process a whole XML document into another XML document. Instead
       of converting only one formula at a time, blahtexml can convert all the
       formulas of the given XML file into MathML.

       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is
       included below.  For a complete description, see the online

       --help Show summary of options.

              Enables use of commands that are specific to texvc, but that are
              not standard TeX/LaTeX/AMS-LaTeX commands.

              This will print out a list of all error IDs and corresponding
              messages that blahtex can possibly emit inside an <error> block.

       These options control the MathML output of the blahtexml program.

              Enables MathML output.

              This allows one to embed TeX equations in an existing MathML
              code, using a special notation. The equations are given as
              attributes (inline or block) in the
     namespace. Whenever blahtexml
              meets such an equation, it expands it into the equivalent MathML

              For more information check
              or the blahtexml manual.

              Produces TeX annotations in the MathML output.

              Produces PNG files and annotates the MathML output with the PNG
              file name.

       The program is documented fully by the online manual available at:
