Which editor do you use for math articles

Although Mathematica 7 is a very powerful peace of software as far as 
the computational part goes it turns out to be quite limited and 
unstable when it comes to word editing and processing, despite the 
claims in the help that it is almost as powerful as WinWord.
For example it crashed multiple times on me while I was trying to setup 
the right fonts and sizes, as  a result I lost all my work several 
times, it also messed up my fonts, sizes, styles, settings for the 
equations, its undo is totally useless and I couldn't figure out how to 
format a text and a graphic in two or more columns and display them side 
by side in a notebook as well as how to control what goes on what page 
and while printing to PDF often it wouldn't print all pages, but just 
the first 2-3.

All that said I'm wondering what program to use to write my work in, and 
I'm asking for advice - is WinWord any better when it comes to handling 
equations?
Any other choices?

What is the best way to export Mathematica 7 equations and graphics?
