I think any kind of mark-up file format that is open will do. Such as LaTeX. Graphics is the hard part, any way. Xiao-Yong
Maybe not here, but in some cases pdftohtml in http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdftohtml/ may help. HTML seems to be the most easily edited format across platforms, yet it is not for printing on paper. For math, MathML support or inline images may be a solution. Ah! By the way, you can see LyX at www.lyx.org. It's like a front-end to LaTeX. The version in the ports is 1.3.x, which is a bit older. (But will give you the idea.) It has a Windows version running on top of MikTeX and the version in the ports works on tetex. It's not perfect for a Word addict and may need some tutorial reading, yet much comfortable than plain LaTeX. Best.
