How does it compare withhttp://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Wiki2LaTeX
I invested much more time in the development. So it is probably more
complete. If you really want to know I can make a feature by feature
list. But its going to be very long.
Just to give you an idea how deeply I went into detail I give you a
question I had to think about. If a table is very wide, it has to be
landscape, but if it is a nested one it must not. And if it as very long
it has to span several pages. And if it begins with a set of rows
continuously containing at least on header cell each, those rows have to
be repeated on top of each new page of the table. And by the way what
happens if these cells contain footnotes.
Sounds like fun?

in wikipedia, wikibooks, etc.
This is because it is running on the client side.
On the other hand Wiki2LaTeX runs on the server side. That means it
needs to be installed by the administrator of the Wiki.
I will also provide a server side version of my software if requested to
