Yep. More in general, and I would never stop repeating it, LyX is likely to become the choice for thousands of non-geek academics and writers, expecially in humanistic fields. Thus, all of these topics need to be discussed and explained well: 1. Collaborating techniques and strategies (along with the "to/from MSWord/Ooo conversion") 2. the other half of the skye (read: humanistic fields) 3. BibLaTeX package (useful for all but expecially for humanists) But if what you want to write is not a online guide, but a book, it doesn't have to fiddle with tips and tricks to override problem x or problem y. You should concentrate in general strategies and choices, and just point to the tricks we can find in the mailing lists or googling. On point 1) I would treat problems with collaborating with Word-like environments (say 99% of humanistic fields) (there have been recently a thread on this), on 2) the best choices for non-scientific writing, on 3) just explain how good can this package work for almost all needs. _________________________________________________________________ Fatti riconoscere con i biglietti da visita di Messenger http://www.messenger.it/bigliettiVisita.aspx
