LyX has reduced my vocabulary of foul language due to me not using it so
much. LyX is good. It is, as the author says, a What You See Is What You
Mean editor; it forces some standards on your typing and lets you just
worry about content.
I've only used it to produce some documentation and HTML output in my
current projects (http://sourceforge.net/projects/xiqual), but it is
supposed to handle graphics and mathematical symbols, if needed.
It uses standard command-line tools to do the conversion, so if you've
got a filter for it, LyX probably supports it.
