I just made PDF generation via LaTeX work. To build the PDF, go to the
d-programming-language.org project on github and run

make LATEST=2.061 `pwd`/web/dlangspec.pdf

Compilation proceeds without error, however the generated PDF has a lot of
issues. A few the come to mind:

* there are still quite a few hardcoded HTML tags in source that need to be
replaced with macros. Warning, the section headers should be bumped by one,
e.g. <h2>xyz</h2> becomes $(H3 xyz).

* tables need a fair amount of tuning and adjustment

* a lot of code is in bold $(B xyz), but should be $(D xyz).

* Probably some HTML escapes &xyz; are still hiding somewhere

* Need to use the new ESCAPES macro recently introduced

This looks mechanical but may actually be quite challenging. Requires good
command of both ddoc and latex.

This is marked as a DMD issue, but shouldn't it be a 'websites' issue?

OK, changed the tag. Hopefully the issue doesn't get hidden by anyone's
filters.
