With TeX, you have to be careful to say that you cannot do something, but
this certainly isn't the kind of layout for which I would recommend TeX.

Context is an alternative to latex as a macro package on top of TeX. It is
much better at advanced layouts than latex, but has frustrations of its
own. Their site, www.pragma-ade.nl, contains a lot of showcase stuff, and
also a lot of documentation.

A good general getting-started page is www.tug.org/begin.html.
