The XyMTeX2PS system for typesetting chemical documents having structural formulas has been developed to cover both traditional printing and Internet communication. The system is capable of providing chemical documents as PostScript files of high quality. The PostScript files can be converted into PDF files, which serves as a key to cover both of the fields, where more elaborate stereochemical expressions such as wedged bonds are available.
