Groff vs LaTex

Written by: Robert R. Russell on Thursday, April 13, 2023.

I have been needing to digitize some old print documents. Between trying both groff and LaTex to do that I do have a few thoughts on using both of them. If you have simple documents and you want a useable HTML output then use groff with the MS macro set. Don’t use the MOM macro set. It doesn’t produce reliable HTML output.

LaTex is better if you have a larger document or need more complex references. LaTex doesn’t make things easier for outputing html though.
