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.
