I can avoid the switch to the cl by programming one of the xemacs
functions keys to run latex. That way I have the best of both worlds
-- latex and wysiwyg.
But, nobody has yet mentioned the FOREMOST advantage of latex - once
the penny drops, it is super fun !
I have just finished a small non-technical book using latex and
enjoyed every minute of it. Latex is a joy to work with.
