I think that the hosting on the GNU Smalltalk wiki should not be the
definitive solution. As Martin said, we need a browser-like environment
to work on the repetitive parts of the standard; this browser-like
environment can then output LaTeX if we want. Now, I am the GNU
Smalltalk maintainer and I want to develop something in a browser---that
may tell you that I find this need pretty urgent. :-)
The cool thing about LaTeX is that it supports defining new macros. If
somebody knows of a good LaTeX->HTML converter written in PHP I could
add a new "input method" to the GNU Smalltalk wiki. But it needs to be
a good one.
