LaTeX and InDesign: how do they match up?


Hello everyone,

This week, someone asked me to design a science book, which is all set in LaTeX. I don't have any prior experience with this markup language and I might lack time to learn it comprehensively.

Having gathered some information about the language and downloaded the software at I'd say that, with respect to typesetting of scientific formulas, LaTeX can be very helpful. But when it comes to over-all book design and typographic details, I'd rather stick to InDesign (CS3, it is).

Is there an easy and reliable way to 'translate' LaTeX-documents into InDesign?
