Generally, people choose commercial word processors because they're
familiar with them. They choose LaTeX (or similar) because they want
their math to look good.
I've seen theses and dissertations produced using:
- LaTeX and other TeX-based distributions
- MS Word
- nroff/troff (!)
but none using an SGML- or XML-based package like DocBook. If anyone
has done it or knows of an example, please post it to the list. I'd
like to see how well it handles math.
