I was thinking of writing my thesis in Mathematica(3.0 but I'm probably
going to get 4.0 soon) .
It has more than enough word processing and formatting options to do
this but I can't figure out how to get the automatic numbering object to
work(the most I've managed is getting a zero to appear next to one
What I need is to have a little number on the right side of  the page
next to each of the equations. This is impractical to do by hand since
my thesis already has over 100 equtions and whenever I edit it I end up
adding or deleting a few which means they have to be re-numbered(right
now I am copying the equations in postscript format into a regular word
It would also be nice if it could automatically adjust any references to
the equations when their numbers are changed.
I know that LaTex can do all of this and more but then I'd have to spend
time to learn it and have to re-write all my equations. It is also
inconvenient to do the math in one program and the writing in another.

Can anyone help me?
