VTeX scientific desktop publishing system

VTeX is a professional publishing system aimed for preparing scientific publications. It is based on popular TeX typesetting system originally developed by Donald E. Knuth. But VTeX is not just a TeX port to the Windows platform, it is much more. We made a convenient, intuitively clear user shell, added a set of visual tools to deal with TeX objects. For comprehensive description of VTeX click here. Also see a list of some unique features of VTeX.

... allows to include and visually edit TeX-style equations within word-processing packages (Word, WordPad, AmiPro, Excel, etc.). Since it is an OLE-based Windows application, it is compatible with many other programs.

Its special "lite" version - EqMagic Lite - is available for free.


... automatically builds HTML documents from your LaTeX sources. Unlike other TeX-to-HTML converters, TeXpider (pronounced tek-spi-der) contains full TeX power. This makes it more reliable and flexible than alternative tools. Comes with TeX macro packages that allow you to define frames, background images, and other HTML objects right in your LaTeX source. This makes the TeXpider the best tool for publishing your documents on-line.
