Hi Per,

Based on what you wrote I gather you're not familiar with StyleSheets in 
Mathematica.  That's what you need to learn how to use.  You either use 
an existing Stylesheet or create your own.  The StyleSheet then has 
various cell templates that you choose to enter various formatted data 
into your notebook.  For example if you wanted to enter a block of 
descriptive text, you would choose the "text" style, and then as you 
enter text into that cell style, it's formatted as simple text although 
embedded math can be entered as well.  There is a whole process for 
managing, editing, creating, and using stylesheets in Mathematica.  For 
example, if I just wanted to startout using the Book stylesheet, I would 
choose File/New/Styled Notebook/Book.  That loads a default stylesheet 
in a default "book" style.  But you would need to understand how to use 
those styles and edit the styles and I'm not aware of a good reference 
for that.

Dominic
