I think LyX is the easiest word processor (although technically, they say it's
not a word processor), though LaTeX is more standard. The best would be to be
able to use both, as Brad suggested, but I see one problem. You can export from
LyX to LaTeX, but if you modify the LaTeX file, you can't put it back in the LyX
document. There's a LaTeX to LyX converter (called ReLyX), but I don't think we
should rely on it too much (it must be fault-free). Any thought on this?
