Are these available anywhere?

I don't know enough of the Squeak documentation context to make
a certainly relevant contribution here, but I am a big LaTeX
fan, and have had nothing but trouble with Word.  If nothing else,
LaTeX remains compatible with itself -- I was able to re-latex a
dissertation written in 1987, and it was trouble-free. With a few
minimal changes (4 lines in the header) I was able to use
pdf-generating extensions, including all the navigation goodies.

I have, however, had poor luck with LaTeX to HTML conversion,
at least on this Windows box that I normally use.
