ISO Character Entities and Their LaTeX Equivalents
Author: Rune Mathisen
Newsgroup: comp.text.sgml, comp.text.tex
We have been making documentation on the entity character sets given
in the ISO 8879 (SGML) standard. The aim is twofold:
(1) Provide the mappings necessary to translate
SGML documents to TeX/LaTeX.
(2) Provide documentation on how the characters look
by producing glyphs (using LaTeX of course).
This will also work the other way around: it is actually
a neat reference for LaTeX users needing some special symbol.
-- Almost all ISO 8879 mappings to LaTeX have been found.
ISObox is missing.
-- We are including mappings to Unicode.
-- We will add other character entity sets:
ISO TR 9573-13, HTML-4, MathML
-- We want someone to help us write a database application (SQL)
to sort and present the symbols for different purposes
...and replace SDATA fields in entity files.
-- We need help finding more documentation on
-- font packages for TeX/LaTeX.
-- other (public) character entity sets.
