Despite the face-lift Word 2007 still likes to auto-format and move stuff around on me. I just don't understand how its going to react to my input. I am looking for some way to create some decent looking documentation. Pretty basic stuff, some text, some lists, some tables, maybe a couple screen shots.

In the past I have played around with Nvu to make an html file, which I would then print to a pdf. That was a very round-about way to get a pdf.
Now I just found proTeXT and will try learning TeX. Any other suggestions?"
