Subject Re: PDF generation, DTD for XML documentation and slides

AFAIK, Latka was around before AntEater came about and takes a
fundamentally different tack. They are, at this point, being developed
independently of each other.

Anteater is a jewel indeed.
What is the status of possible integration with Jakarta Latka?
