Of course I agree that Mathematica is really convenient for this kind of quick and easy document preparation, with the ability to export to many reasonable formats such as PDF, and XML. But just to set the record straight, because it was mentioned as an important feature that TeX doesn't offer: in LyX on Mac OS X (mentioned by Murray as a LaTeX frontend), you can in fact paste PDF directly from the clipboard.
