PreTeXt (pretextbook.org) is an XML vocabulary for writing textbooks, research articles, and monographs.

### Integration with WeBWorK

A PreTeXt project can include WeBWorK exercises. As with the WeBWorK sample chapter, the project can be:

- processed into HTML,
- processed into a PDF,
- processed into PG problems, set def files, and set header files,
- which can be used in WeBWorK in the usual way.

In HTML, the WeBWorK problems can behave in a number of ways, including as live embedded problems or as static versions.
