I've used it. Can't stand it. I don't have the time, nor the patience, to
learn all the arcane commands you need to know in order to make things
happen. And I shouldn't *have* to learn all that stuff. To me, the whole
point of having a computer is that it takes care of all that complexity, and
lets me focus on what's important - the document's contents and, to a minor
extent, its formatting.

Peter, it is clear that you and I have fundamentally different, and probably
irreconcilable, approaches and philosophies on software development. These
differences are extremely unlikely to be resolved in this forum.
