Main Question or Discussion Point
Now if I want to attach my mathematica notebook to the pdf what would I have to enter in LaTeX?
The Mathematica front end is far and a way the best WYSIWYG editor for LaTeX.
I think I understand where you might be coming from, but I would be interested to hear the reasons for your view. Particularly, I agree the praise may be faint, but I do not see how it is damning.Damning with faint praise if ever I heard it.
In retrospect I see this, but since I never heard the phrase I assumed you were being poetic.It is just a cliche. I think you're reading to much into it.
Okay, I will agree with pointless. Everything can be done perfectly well in a good text editor. But eventually plain ASCII will go extinct, just like the DOS 8 by 3 filenames --- this are historical accidents resulting from early computers with small amounts of memory. I am confident that we will see all computer languages (for typesetting or for programming) move to a more expanded set of characters, which is what wysiwyg really is.As it is I find any wisywig for LaTeX that I've tried to be a horrendously pointless thing.
I am not advocating the use of WinEDT, I am advocating the use of Mathematica. And incidentally, I know a mathematician who does LaTeX in some mind-boggling slow macintosh wysiwyg environment, and I know some fellows that do not typeset their own work at all.I can't think of many mathematicians I know who use anything like WinEdt. If you're just using WinEdt as a text editor, then what's so special about WinEdt?
