Re: [OT] Sun Solaris 10 Manual. Is it done in LaTeX?

It's not out of the question that they would have used distiller to build the PDF from PS output from laTeX, but I agree it's more likely some other structured format. XML is a good bet.

It doesn't look like it is:

AFAIK Distiller is a software to create PDFs from various formats. They
probably wouldn't have used it if they already used LaTeX in the first
place. Oh, and XPP might me "XML Professional Publisher".

I wish I had been aware enough to enjoy my time as a toddler.
