Larry Hunter (hunter@nlm.nih.gov) has been happy using Macintosh WYSIWYG software -- MathType, Canvas, Word, and Quark Xpress -- to produce his new book in AI and Molecular Biology. It was faster than his dissertation formatting in LaTex, easier to control, and gave a more professional result. TeX is fine if the defaults work for you, but customization greatly increases the time and effort. Larry suggest that people check out MathType 2.11, FrameMaker, and other recent WYSIWYG or GUI products.
