Several posters mentioned LaTeX as the application of choice for technical documents. LyX is a Free Software WYSIWYG editor for LaTeX. The download for Windows systems is http://www.home.zonnet.nl/rareitsma/lyx/ More about LyX, documentation, downloads for un*x systems are at http://www.lyx.org The advantages of LyX are: - all the aesthetics of LaTeX documents and equations - easy to embed graphics - joining the LaTeX community - high quality WYSIWYG and graphical-user interface - spell-checking, styles - output direct to PDF - free The disadvantages of LyX (for Windows) are: - requires a working installation of (also free) MikTeX - pathnames cannot include spaces " ". LyX should be installed in (for example) "c:\lyx\" rather than in "c:\program files\" and document files should be in (for example) "c:\docs\" rather than in "c:\my documents\" Although many users will ultimately prefer to edit LaTeX directly, Lyx is excellent either as a gateway to LaTeX or for users who prefer WYSIWYG/GUI.
