* Orgmode markups inside LaTeX fragments

Is there any way to turn on orgmode markups inside LaTeX fragments for
export?  For example, when I write
    \mycommand{*Bold text*}
in an org file and export it to LaTeX, I would like to have
    \mycommand{\textbf{Bold text}}
Currently it is exported as-is (verbatim):
    \mycommand{*Bold text*}

Thanks.

There is no way to achieve this right now, and I think it would be
confusing to support mixed syntax.  But I'm open to better use-cases.

Hi Bastien,

My use-case is that I need to write a document that needs to be output
to various styles (all using LaTeX).  Each style may use a different
class and set of packages.  And each  defines a different set of
commands, with different syntax, to format the contents (they are not
standard as \section, etc.)  Of course I don't want to re-write the
same contents for each style, so I defined a common command interface
such that I could write the contents as
    \contentBlockOne{\textbf{Bold text}}
and implemented the interface for each specific style.

That has been working very well until I need to also output the
contents to HTML.  I thought it would be great to migrate the contents
to orgmode, then export to LaTeX or HTML.  But I need to re-use the
common interface, so I defined orgmode macros to be able to write:
    {{{contentBlockOne(*Bold text*)}}}
or
    {{{contentBlockOneBegin}}} *Bold text* {{{contentBlockOneEnd}}}
The macros will be expanded to LaTeX commands or HTML markups accordingly.
The problem is that orgmode markups inside LaTeX or HTML fragments are
not converted.  And I cannot use \textbf because it will not be
translated to HTML.

However, I've just discovered that while markups like *bold*,
/italic/... are not converted, other markups like lists are.  For
example:
\mycommand{*Bold*
- Item 1
- Item 2
}

is exported as

\mycommand{\textbf{Bold}
\begin{itemize}
\item Item 1
\item Item 2
\end{itemize}
}

So it seems a bit inconsistent.

If there is any solution or workaround for my problem, please let me know.

Thanks,

If these custom commands are analogs of commands like section and
such, you can always define your own LaTeX_CLASS. The manual has
information on how to do that.

These custom commands are not analogous to sectioning commands.  In
fact most of them are environments.  So I decided that orgmode could
not achieve what I wanted to do (at least currently) and continued to
use LaTeX.  Too bad, I really like orgmode syntax.

I had a similar issue with typesetting in theorem and proof
environments; what saved me from messy LaTeX syntax was
org-special-blocks.  More info is on Worg:

http://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/org-special-blocks.html

This is not *exactly* your situation, since this is using org syntax
within \begin{} ... \end{} blocks, but if you can adapt your commands
to be environments, this will get you what you want.
