GNU TeXmacs: a scientific editing platform


GNU TeXmacs is a free scientific editing platform with special features for mathematicians. The editor can be used to produce documents with a professional typesetting quality (better than TeX/LaTeX) via a user-friendly front-end. The editor can be used as a front-end to several computer algebra systems and includes a lot of additional facilities, like a presentation mode, a technical picture editor, a typed linking tool, etc. The editor can be extended by users in several ways: using style files, plug-ins or via the Scheme extension language. Converters exist for LaTeX, Xhtml and MathML.
