The Connexions Project (http://cnx.rice.edu) uses XML (including
content mathml) to publish book-length sets of course notes
(http://cnx.rice.edu/content/browse_courses). They are developing
authoring tools using Word and Latex, but right now you need to
hand-code the xml or use a lite version of a proprietary wysiwyg tool.
Once you get the fonts set up in Mozilla, the html-rendered math is
beautiful. They have a xml-latex filter for generating pdf, with an
index and table of contents. It's a little early for this project,
but worth watching.
