EdiTeX is a MathML editor based on TeX syntax. It means that it allows
the user to create a MathML document by typing the TeX markup as he or she
would do in a normal text editor. The TeX markup is parsed as the user types,
an internal structured model of the typed text is built and from there
an XSLT stylesheet generates the corresponding MathML.
The main idea behind EdiTeX is to combine in a single tool a TeX-to-MathML
converter and a WYSIWYG editor for math expressions. This way the experienced
user is not forced to use menus and palettes and can take advantage of using
a syntax that he or she is already familiar with. Moreover, by using XSLT,
the user is free to define his/her own macros (even at a more
semantic level) and to provide separately (in a resource that is not hard-coded
into the editor) a suitable presentation for them.

Although a Debian package for EdiTeX has been available for a long time,
this Web page has been published only now.
There is no extensive documentation about the editor yet.
(>= 0.5.1, required).
Ocaml (in principle this is not a strict
requirement but the configuration script will fail if Ocaml
and some related packages are not installed).
