	I have not used either of these, but you folks might want to
look at xword and lyx.  I am under the impression that lyx is more
complete, but uses the unfree XForms library, although there is a
free near-clone of xforms called "FL."  Lyx has some raving fans.
I believe that xword is at an earlier stage of development, but I
am not sure.
