      Description

      LaTeX is bulky, it's results are not easily viewed with a text editor, and it's not easy to convert to HTML for display on the project website.

      We should migrate away from LaTeX and find a format that satisfies these things, making it easier to consolidate and organize the available documentation.

      Preferably, the solution to this should not require platform-specific build tools (like pdflatex and LaTeX styles are currently required). Ideally, the solution should be able to build with Java/Maven plugin without any such extra tools (except what Maven downloads as dependencies of the plugin).

          Gah, I missed the transposed ticket reference. Should be ACCUMULO-2758.

          The doxia module should be able to create PDF and/or HTML from Markdown. http://maven.apache.org/doxia/references/

          It would be nice if we could just use Markdown for everything.

          Anyone know of an easy way to convert markdown to PDF?

          Ideally the documentation format would be near plain text and would be easily converted to both HTML and PDF.
