I'd just like to support this view. In the long run, I find it easier
and more efficient to work with a document structuring approach such as
LaTeX or DocBook than a descriptive approach such as TeX or a WYSIWYG
editor. I suppose LyX is an attempt to have it both ways, but I haven't
really tried it seriously.

For example, to me LaTeX is to TeX what C++ is to C.
