       "latexml" - transforms a	TeX/LaTeX file into XML.

       latexml [options] texfile

	--destination=file sets	destination file (default stdout).
	--output=file	   [obsolete synonym for --destination]
	--preload=module   requests loading of an optional module;
			   can be repeated
	--preamble=file	   sets	a preamble file	which will
			   effectively be prepended to the main	file.
	--postamble=file   sets	a postamble file which will
			   effectively be appended to the main file.
	--includestyles	   allows latexml to load raw *.sty file;
			   by default it avoids	this.
	--path=dir	   adds	to the paths searched for files,
			   modules, etc;
	--documentid=id	   assign an id	to the document	root.
	--quiet		   suppress messages (can repeat)
	--verbose	   more	informative output (can	repeat)
	--strict	   makes latexml less forgiving	of errors
	--bibtex	   processes as	a BibTeX bibliography.
	--xml		   requests xml	output (default).
	--tex		   requests TeX	output after expansion.
	--box		   requests box	output after expansion
			   and digestion.
	--noparse	   suppresses parsing math
	--nocomments	   omit	comments from the output
	--inputencoding=enc specify the	input encoding.
	--VERSION	   show	version	number.
	--debug=package	   enables debugging output for	the named
	--help		   shows this help message.

       If texfile is '-', latexml reads	the TeX	source from standard input.
       If texfile has an explicit extention of ".bib", it is processed as a
       BibTeX bibliography.

	   Specifies the destination file; by default the XML is written to

	   Requests the	loading	of an optional module or package.  This	may be
	   useful if the TeX code does not specificly require the module (eg.
	   through input or usepackage).  For example, use
	   "--preload=LaTeX.pool" to force LaTeX mode.

       "--preamble"=file, "--postamble"=file
	   Specifies a file whose contents will	effectively be prepended or
	   appended to the main	document file's	content. This can be useful
	   when	processing TeX fragments, in which case	the preamble would
	   contain documentclass and begindocument control sequences.  This
	   option is not used when processing BibTeX files.

	   This	optional allows	processing of style files (files with
	   extensions "sty", "cls", "clo", "cnf").  By default,	these files
	   are ignored	unless a latexml implementation	of them	is found (with
	   an extension	of "ltxml").

	   These style files generally fall into two classes:  Those that
	   merely affect document style	are ignorable in the XML.  Others
	   define new markup and document structure, often using deeper	LaTeX
	   macros to achieve their ends.  Although the omission	will lead to
	   other errors	(missing macro definitions), it	is unlikely that
	   processing the TeX code in the style	file will lead to a correct

	   Add dir to the search paths used when searching for files, modules,
	   style files,	etc; somewhat like TEXINPUTS.  This option can be

	   Assigns an ID to the	root element of	the XML	document.  This	ID is
	   generally inherited as the prefix of	ID's on	all other elements
	   within the document.	 This is useful	when constructing a site of
	   multiple documents so that all nodes	have unique IDs.

	   Reduces the verbosity of output during processing, used twice is
	   pretty silent.

	   Increases the verbosity of output during processing,	used twice is
	   pretty chatty.  Can be useful for getting more details when errors

	   Specifies a strict processing mode. By default, undefined control
	   sequences and invalid document constructs (that violate the DTD)
	   give	warning	messages, but attempt to continue processing.  Using
	   --strict makes them generate	fatal errors.

	   Forces latexml to treat the file as a BibTeX	bibliography.  Note
	   that	the timing is slightly different than the usual	case with
	   BibTeX and LaTeX.  In the latter case, BibTeX simply	selects	and
	   formats a subset of the bibliographic entries; the actual TeX
	   expansion is	carried	out when the result is included	in a LaTeX
	   document.  In contrast, latexml processes and expands the entire
	   bibliography; the selection of entries is done during
	   postprocessing.  This also means that any packages that define
	   macros used in the bibliography must	be specified using the
	   "--preload" option.

	   Requests XML	output;	this is	the default.

	   Requests TeX	output for debugging purposes;	processing is only
	   carried out through expansion and digestion.	 This may not be quite
	   valid TeX, since Unicode may	be introduced.

	   Requests Box	output for debugging purposes;	processing is carried
	   out through expansion and digestions, and the result	is printed.

	   Normally latexml preserves comments from the	source file, and adds
	   a comment every 25 lines as an aid in tracking the source.  The
	   option --nocomments discards	such comments.

	   Specify the input encoding, eg. "--inputencoding=iso-8859-1".  The
	   encoding must be one	known to Perl's	Encode package.	 Note that
	   this	only enables the translation of	the input bytes	to UTF-8 used
	   internally by LaTeXML, but does not affect catcodes.	 It is usually
	   better to use LaTeX's inputenc package.  Note that this does	not
	   affect the output encoding, which is	always UTF-8.

	   Shows the version number of the LaTeXML package..

	   Enables debugging output for	the named package. The package is
	   given without the leading LaTeXML::.

	   Shows this help message.
