I'm curious about this.  Do you recommend doing the actually typing of 
the main text in Mathematica?  Or writing in Word and copying paragraphs 
over to a Mathematica file as they are completed?

I certainly been exasperated with Word a lot when trying to use MathType 
or Equation Editor, and would love to use Mathematica, but Word as a lot 
of features for text editing that I find very convenient for writing 
actual text.  How could one emulate field codes, very handy for managing 
references, in Mathematica?
