I have never had need for TeX since I don't publish papers (I'm a full time Senior Lecturer with a heavy teaching load; research is not part of my job). For many years, I've used MS Word with a rather old version of MathType for writing quizzes, tests, etc. But Word 2007 understands MathML, so it's now possible to copy and paste directly from Mathematica into Word, and then edit if needed using Word's Equation tools. The results are quite nice, and I'll probably ditch MathType entirely and go with the Mathematica -> Word route, which I find easier than putting in integrals (etc.) directly in Word. -- Helen Read University of Vermont
