1 Quick Start: Using the TeXpider
The main TeXpider program is the itexwb.exe executible. This is an enhanced version of the Big TEX for Windows (vtexwb.exe) present in the regular VTEX distribution . itexwb.exe supports this additional switch:
-$h Generate HTML
For example, to generate an HTML output out of a LATEX document mypaper.tex, you would generally write
C:> itexwb -$h &lt209w mypaper
C:> itexwb -$h &latexw mypaper
Notice the use of the format files &lt209w and &latexw. These formats are essentially LATEX2.09 and LATEX2E, with minor modifications and customized font assignments; the explanation and details can be found below.
if you are using Win95 or Win/NT, you can actually enter the above lines on the command line. Under Win3.1, where there is no command line, you should enter this line from the
[File]/[Run] prompt. In general, running a command-line application from Win3.1 is not going to be pleasant, and we strongly suggest running the TeXpider from the VTEX shell.
For you convenience we have provided a couple of batch files:
l2etohtm.bat and 209tohtm.bat for correspondingly LATEX2E and LATEX2.09.

Before actually compiling the document, you
must make small changes to you source:
- in the \documentstyle line (LATEX2.09), insert the export style. This change will have no effect on normal TEX compilation but will provide structural guidelines to the TeXpider.
- if you are using LATEX2E, you should add \usepackage{export} to your document.
- In both cases, if you are using the leqno style, you should include the expleqno style instead.
- In almost all cases, the export.sty should be the last style included. In LATEX2E, it is best to place \usepackage{export} just before \begin{document}.
The output of the HTML conversion (.htm and .gif files) is written into the directory mypaper.i2h.

To convert a L
ATEX document within the VTEX/Windows shell, use the [Run]/[Convert to RTF/HTML] menu option.

At this time there is no intention to produce a Small version of the program
