Don't ask me that!

The issue of converting LaTeX to text was raised in a thread some months
back (Sept-Nov period, IIRC) regarding comparative benefits of LaTeX and
DocBook.  Frankly, I haven't used LaTeX sufficiently to know what the =>
text conversion process is.  I'd root around a LaTeX list or archive for
the solution.  If requested, I'll pull up the LaTeX v. DocBook
discussion and comments regarding this issue.
