	In my limited experience in using Mathematica's typesetting and other
user-connected features, there are a large number of bugs, weird
behaviors and unexplained occurrences. I would not use it for
preparing final ouitput. Others will disagree with me, but I regard
Mathematica as pretty user-hostile. 
	Documentation, while extensive, is inadequate in my view. I
usually can't find what I want.
	With sufficient motivation, I could describe some of the bugs
I mentioned, but I'm too busy right now.
