Hi,
I'm mightily impressed by the look of the Yii web site. Excellent work!

What struck me as especially beautiful is the Definitive Guide to Yii.

May I inquire what tool or method that was built with?

It's built from the source code in markdown format using a bit customized (generation of API links and tip blocks) markdown parser provided in Yii distribution. The rest is custom CSS/JavaScript.

Not exactly. They use a build tool to parses it as a LaTex only. From LaTex, they use pdflatex command from miktex package to convert to PDF. That's where the all the beautiful stuff comes from.

I loved the guide looks too and asked Qiang for the way they do it. ;)

That's about PDFs. Website guide does not use LaTex.
