variable ordering in TeXForm

Hi all,
I'm currently using TeXForm to export formulae from Mathematica (5)
into a LaTeX document. The translation seems pretty good, but I'm
annoyed by the ordering chosen by Mathematica for sorting e.g the
monomials of a polynomial.
I'd like to get what TraditionalForm produces, but instead I get the
opposite ordering.
Consider for instance the polynomial 6x^2-7x+2. The usual output of
Mathematica reverses the order, writing 2-7x+6x^2.
However, when asked for the TraditionalForm of either polynomial
above, it gives what I expect, i.e. (a graphically fancy version of)
the first ordering.
On the other hand, TexForm reverses the ordering, similar to the usual
output.
Is there a simple way to get around this?
By the way, I wonder why this is the (hopefully hackable) default
behaviour. I thought that pretty much everybody would be happy with a
latex code reproducing the traditional form when plugged into a latex
document...
Thanks a lot for any help.
Francesco
