Latex is inappropriate as it uses layout markup rather than structural
markup unless it gets used in an unconventional way. XML was partly
invented to circumvent the shortcomings of TeX/LaTeX. Using XML (or
some custom SC), you can generate LaTeX from it (That's currently the
normal way to get pdf output from xml: xml->latex->dvi->ps->pdf).
