It is definitely better than things like Microsoft Word and equation editor, 
but I still find using Scientific word (SW) which produces Latex as final 
output much easier to use to typeset my reports with.  SW is all GUI, many 
more options for typesetting (it is designed just for that part) and for me 
it is much faster and easier to type math equations into it, and the final 
output looks better. (You can't beat Latex quality for final output).

I'd like one day to do the final report I am working on in Mathematica as 
well, much easier, all in one place, but it is not there for me, may be in 
version 8 this will be improved. So, now I do the "computing part" in 
Mathematica, copy any results over, and write the final report and in SW.
