clueless question: how would i produce a document with vim and latex?
latex blurb [from what i have read] says that latex is a set of macros
for tex, but i dont really know what tex is apart from that its
something to do with typesetting. So is the idea you produce a file with
vim, then parse it with tex/latex/something which outputs a postscript
A bit like an html file is parsed by a browser...?

thanks for all the responses so far!
