The third version of tei2latex is available at the following url:
 
ftp://ftp.lri.fr/LRI/soft/ihm/tei2latex-0.1f.tar.gz
 
The main changes are:
- Better handling of <listBibl>
- New renditional ladders supported: pre and post, as well as a new
  value for slant attribute called "switch" to toggle between italics
  and roman (actually uses LaTeX \emph).
- TITLE elements with specific type and level can have their rendition
  modified using the syntax TITLE.<level>.<type>.  See the tei2latexrc
  file.
- LaTeX preamble and macros can be added from the configuration files.
 
More work has been done to improve the translator with several TEI Lite
files and TEI users wishes.  Thanks again to

This is still an alpha version, its documentation is badly written and
incomplete.  Several improvements need to be done (some of them
noted in the TODO file).  Please, let me know of any mistake or
feature you would like me to add.
 
Here is the contents of the README file (which haven't changed so far).

ABSTRACT
 
tei2latex is a program that translates a TEI Lite document into a
LaTeX2e document.
 
The translation process can be configured in several ways for two
reasons:
 . to enhance the default translation in case TEI Lite lacks
   information about the presentation (as in tables for instance)
 . to personalize the presentation of a document or a set of
   documents.
 
This is an alpha version so don't be suprised to encounter bugs and
don't hesitate to suggest enhancements.

*******************
 
 
 *  The `sdata' conversion tables came Dtd Fragments made by Ken
MacLeod, who in turn copied it from GF. Here are Gary's
acknowledgements for these:
 
 *  The NSGMLS output parser, `SGMLS.pm' and `sgmlspl, comes from
    David Megginson.
 
   *  The tables for the conversion of ISOlat1 to "best" ASCII follow a
      system developed by Markus Kuhn.
 
   *  `ISOlat1.2tex' is based on a latin1 to TeX table by (I think) Peter
      Flynn.
 
   *  Other TeX symbols were grabbed individually from numerous sources.
 
   *  ISOlat1 etc. are from the ISO.
