Dear Tim,

You may be right. I pinged a fellow tech writer who knows something 
about LaTex, and he was amused that someone suggested it as a 
replacement for FrameMaker. On the other hand, LaTex seems to be very 
popular in academia. One thing I can't figure out is what *editor* 
people use to create LaText documents. As far as I can tell, LaTex is a 
markup language not an editor. Can you get an editor that has 
menus/dialogs/function keys/whatever for inputting LaTex?
