Re:vs. Wiki, LaTeX

People also don't like \LaTeX docs because \LaTeX authors don't change the margins - you end up with a page about the size of a novel's folio printed in the middle of the ISO A4 sheet. People just aren't taught about it; I was encouraged to use \LaTeX as part of my Physics degree but they never tell you how to present a document, just how to mark it up. That's great when the document is going to be sent off to some journal to typeset against their own macros, but when you're just printing out your research project you need to be using \setlength{}s!
