Re:The first WYSIWYM

I'm not trying to start an argument--hell, I'm new here. But I'm trying to understand why anyone wouldn't use professional tools like Quark or InDesign. (Hell, I think, Ventura will still run on some PCs.) Are there real publishers--aside from tiny, idiosyncratic presses that would accept Lyx, or even LaTex, files? I mean, can you get work from, say, Simon & Schuster, or Harcourt using these "document processors"? Don't places like that require real, full-bodied page layout programs.
