Aephea is a text-based authoring tool for HTML. It enforces well-formedness with a simpler and stricter TeX-like syntax and provides useful extensions and abstractions with facilities for adding new ones. It emphasizes a single unified approach that stays close to HTML itself and promotes and utilizes CSS extensively. Abstractions such as dictionary stacks, arithmetic, and iteration are part of Aephea.

Release Notes: Document-level layout logic has been completely removed from the simpledocument framework, and should now be specified in a separate CSS style file. An example file is shipped with Aephea in the contrib directory. Additional hooks have been added to the simpledocument class to facilitate this separation.
Release Notes: Aephea now contains the simpledocument class for pure HTML authoring and the Portable Unix Documentation (PUD) manual and FAQ classes for authoring corresponding documentation with output in both troff and HTML. The PUD package, now part of Aephea, used to be part of zoem. The PUD classes have seen changes in the document preamble and document postamble. The itemize environment was rewritten to utilise CSS positioning rather than tables for the HTML device.
