LaTex is is.

WSYWIG breaks on large documents, expecially if pictures are inserted.

I have all the initial pdf's in Latex but they need cleaning up.

Since I'm travelling to remote Alaska for a month, I'll have time to
separate the chapters into individual files, and generally set up and clean

I'll be on a 14.4 line so you may not get responses, in fact I usually sign
off from the afs mailer.

It's snowing in the mountains here in Anchorage.

Those of us who ban the use of proprietary document standards like word's
would most likely prefer the more open and universally-available TeX format.
I know that documents in word's format are discarded as unusable here.

If, on the other hand, you are only documenting the windows port of AFS,
then word might make sense.

Thanks to (all the?) people who are working on this project.  It sure will
be nice to have (readable) updated documentation.
