There was a reader report on Macintouch last Saturday:


Briefly, it was claimed that 95% at NASA produced tech reports using  
Word/MathType, and that many of the less than 5% written in TeX could  
not be processed in a timely way because of macro problems. I would  
guess that the real problem was that NASA was not providing proper  
guidelines for TeX use, and most likely lacked TeXpertize in their  
Technical Publications office.
