For relatively simple equations, this is pretty straightforward to do in
Concordia, but as the equations become more complex, it becomes a
nightmare. The immediate solution that springs to mind is to use
Macsyma to generate the equations (or generate them in Tex) and then
import them as pictures in postscript, but this would mean a loss of
recursive mouse sensitivity. It would be nice if Concordia would allow
inline Tex commands for doing this kind of thing.
Definitely!! It would be great if we could in-line (La)Tex in Concordia
records. Then we wouldn't have to waste time fighting Concordia's
environment magic. Then we could use Concordia as just a hypertext
right. This would make Concordia useful as a more portable form of
documentation as well (like, for my unix box, I TeX the documentation, but
when on the lisp machine, the same files would work like hypertext).
Probably asking a lot though.
