Resources on using stylesheets for publishing
Sometimes I write my class notes and assignments in mathematica. I'm over the attitude that WYSYWIG is for dilettantes and come to realize realize I really hate staring at LaTeX code and knowing it like the back of my hand hasn't made me like it any better. So Mathematica I've found to be a nice alternative for simple documents that don't need to look perfect. The only issue I have is that the stylesheets do not seem to be documented very well---programming stylesheets is documented, just not how to use the stylesheets available. I'm not exactly sure how one is supposed to use the stylesheet to structure the documents. For example, I use the article stylesheet, and notice there are cell types for Theorems, proposition, corrallary etc. But I havn't been able to figure out if, for example, the "Theorem" cells are meant for the title/number of the theorem, or for the actual statement of the theorem. If it isn't for the statement of the theorem, is the style sheet designed to use the theorem cell to title the theorem, and then the expression goes under it in a regular text cell? If the theorem cells are meant for the statement of the theorem, then how does one label and title the theorem? Has anyone written documentation on this? It doesn't seem to be in the Mathematica database. Does anyone know a resource for using mathematica as a (quick and dirty) publishing tool? It seems to be undocumented but it has some tantalizing features.
