Yes.

Overall, support for non-documentation uses of Scribble is still
evolving, but it already works well enough for many purposes. I've used
Scribble to write a grant proposal and a few papers. Naturally, we used
Scribble to write the Scribble ICFP'09 paper:

The bridge between Scribble and Latex or HTML is documented in Chapter
18 of the Scribble manual:

http://docs.plt-scheme.org/scribble/config.html

The documentation includes a small example. For a big example, see the
source of the Scribble paper, which is available as the
`mflatt/scribble' Planet package.
