Good to know people are more and more moving away from document writers that tie them to speciific graphical user interfaces and going more towards formats which are easy to read and edit even in plain text. ;) > text files, markup, and literate programming, etc. Would they need to install > LaTeX too, or is org mode self-contained and able to export to pdf without > LaTeX an friends installed? Well, you only need LaTeX for exporting. But if you do want to go immediately to teach him how to export to LaTeX or to PDF in the first lesson, then: yes, you need LaTeX to export to PDF. I have also been writing a guide for Org mode and LaTeX for researchers and writers, it's currently in Brazilian Portuguese and isn't as broad as the info page in GNU Emacs itself, see . Also,  has a more advanced example of a work being done using (mostly) Org mode but also LaTeX, BibTeX, TikZ and abnTeX2.  <https://notabug.org/adfeno/Org_LaTeX_intro>.  <https://notabug.org/adfeno/Trabalho_sobre_gestao_universitaria>. -- - https://libreplanet.org/wiki/User:Adfeno - Palestrante e consultor sobre /software/ livre (não confundir com gratis). - "WhatsApp"?
