Although I do recommend LaTeX to my students, some resist, and I don't
force them for the reasons CFR mentions.
The issue of journals not accepting PDF or LaTeX and requiring RTF or
MSW, has made me feel like I'm on a Quixotic quest. (Conversion to RTF
is not bad, as long as you do not use any more esoteric commands. A
student of mine recently had to change 40+ commands to get the
conversion to RTF to work.)
