See also http://www.ecn.wfu.edu/~cottrell/wp.html for some
reasons why using a word processor at all is a bad idea. There is
no need to fork out hundreds of dollars and purchase the latest
vintage of Word, in order to produce good looking documents. The
best typesetting system ever programmed: TeX and its LaTeX set of
macros, can be installed freely on Mac, Windows and Unix
platforms. 

And LaTeX is not boring.
