Don't be so sure of this :)  I had to fight very hard to have my
committee accept PDF files generated via LaTeX (I'm working on my EdD,
and the education folks simply did not have the slightest clue of what
I wanted to do, even after explaining it to them several
times...they typical response was "What?  No Microsoft Word? How can
you possibly write a dissertation without Word?")

I've noticed many of the list participants here are math/CS
related...I would imagine LaTeX has a much higher level of recognition
in these programs than in liberal arts programs...
