A question for the people who write theses, mathematical and scientific papers, etc. using Mathematica as their word processor: Do you give up traditional typographical niceties like having cos(x)^2 rendered as cos^2 x with cos in roman font? It seems that Mathematica's "traditional" output is still somewhat non-traditional in that the total differentiation operator is not an ordinary roman d, functions are always rendered with parentheses, variables multiplied together like xy come out with a small space between them, etc. Or is there some easy way around this?
