"With WYSIWIG word processors people get interested in the final layout of
the document too soon"

Let's just hope people can grasp the typesetting paradigm and get some actual
input going while letting the 'brain' of the program handle layout and
styles (which are interchangeable). The article exemplifies this visually,
which I think can be helpful when it comes to changing your peers' habits.
