Submission + - Is open source software ready for e-publishing? (antropologi.info)

johanneswilm writes: "Over more than 3 years I have been writing on my anthropology PhD thesis on the politics of Nicaragua. Being the most professional system for PDF-generation, I went with LaTeX. To make the text accessible for the editors, I used the LyX editor. Now that the publication date comes near, I found I had to spend considerable time creating a script to convert the manuscript to formats such as Epub as none of the available tools were quite ready to do it automatically. Is LaTeX only good for writers in the natural sciences? Is the open source community boycotting ebook formats, as Richard Stallman has proposed? Are there better tools to do the same?"
