I also have this problem. But if it is just a matter of your colleague
editing and adding why not just give him the plain text source file. If
there is very little maths in the file then it is directly
readable---and what isn't can be guessed at. You then take back the file
and make sure its ok for reTeXing. After all \textit{} is pretty easy to
work out!
