PDF files can be edited. And for many technical journals, submission in TeX is preferred.

I've not used Microsoft Publisher, so I've no idea whether it works better or not. However, I am not aware of any Microsoft apps specifically designed to type set mathematics. The ability to edit equations in Microsoft apps seems to be just one more feature grafted onto the app. IMO, this approach generally has poorer results and a poorer interface than something specifically designed with mathematics in mind. So, while Microsoft Publisher may be better than Microsoft Word for this task, I doubt it is better than TeX or LaTeX for this task.
