Re: How to write a "proper" math document

You explained what everyone (or almost everyone) knows but omitted the 
only interesting part.  That is: copying *a part* of a pdf and pasting 
it into another pdf to get a third one. I don't think TeX is of any help 
with that. You can do it with the full Adobe Acrobat, but it is not free 
and it is not nearly as simple as selecting a part of a pdf with the 
mouse, copying it (only on the Mac) pasting the selected part into 
Mathematica, adding some more stuff, and printing to pdf.
