Software For Book Writing


	I'm going to be writing a political book soon and I'm not 
sure what software to use to write it.

	I want to use something like Vim to write it, but, I want 
to be able to convert it to OpenOffice/MicrosoftWord, etc. format(s).
The reason that I want to use something like Vim is because I'd be 
able to make a more censored version of the book on the fly for 
certain people to download (underagers, for instance).  I thought 
that latex would be what I needed, but I'm not sure.  I thought 
DocBook, but isn't that for documentation?  I need something that 
goes the whole nine yards, The Little Brown Handbook style (footnotes, 
etc.).  Thanks for the help.

	By the way, you guys get first dibs on the book (it'll be 
free, free as in "free beer").  I'm planning on writing a section 
on free software.
