I agree with Allan Hayes, editing and producing good quality Mma documents is also a priority! I am presenly writing a book on Mma in French. I got nb2tex from mathsource and tried to use it with textures. It is OK but would not filter properly accents (Donald Knuth did'nt think of this when he decided on 7 bit characters). I finally decided to use QuarkExpress instead with an intermediate transfer of the RTF file through Word I would frankly prefer to spend more time on exploring Mma. Mma has freed us from a lot of lower level tasks. It should continue doing this while the user base keep on exploring the Mathematics Sfeir Ecole des Mines Nancy, FRANCE sfeir at mines.u-nancy.fr
