Dear Stephen,

I have dumped Word and wordprocessing more generally and now work  
entirely in TextMate. The MultiMarkdown facility of the Markdown  
bundle is especially useful since you can generate, xhtml, LaTeX,  
PDF, and RTF (if you need to share docs to be edited by others who  
wordprocess) all from a Markdown. In addition I write slides in  
Beamer. So I have all my needs met. Been doing this for awhile. Are  
there any specific obstacles you had in mind?

All the best, Mark
