The next document I put together will be done with LyX

| In other words LyX in a fairly easy to use 
| graphical interface for Tex/LaTex documents.
| One of the things that makes people go gaga 
| over LyX and Tex and Latex is that it works 
| great for mathematical formulas. This is a 
| problem for me because I hardly ever need to 
| work with mathematical formulas. But, any 
| manual, any on line information, etc. about 
| LyX, TeX, or LaTex is about one third or more 
| about mathematical formulas.
| Why would you NOT use a WYSIWYG word processor 
| for a document that has several sections, 
| several graphics and tables, and is a hundred 
| pages long or so with a table of contents and 
| references? 



LyX - A mighty document processor

| If you're looking into impressing your colleagues, you boss - even yourself,
| I can think of no simpler or easier way. Grab this fabulous piece of
| software, start typing and that's it. You'll have superbly laid out documents
| ready in seconds. Just try it. You won't be disappointed.



What's new in LyX 1.6?

,----[ Quote ]
| The development of LyX 1.6.0 took off in July 2007. In November 2008, LyX
| 1.6.0 was finally released. Here's an overview of the major new features that
| were implemented.


LyX 1.6 is ready for release

,----[ Quote ]
| This month saw the release of LyX 1.6 release candidate 1. Occupying a
| position somewhere between a word processor and a mark-up editor, LyX is
| designed to meet the needs of professional and academic writers by allowing
| them to focus on their content rather than formatting and layout. It achieves
| this by eschewing some of the WYSIWYG conventions of a word processor. We've
| covered LyX in the past, so this time we'll focus on the enhancements that
| the 1.6 release brings with it.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
