comment Is there any Word/Writer - LaTeX demonstration document available?
dapperdan: Ok, mostly year research reports - about 200p, many tables, formulas and figures, index. More than 10 contributors of particular chapters. Their computer knowledge very limited - mostly only MS Word, no chance to switch them to LaTex. Audience limited - government institutions mostly... Currently using LO Master Document + chapters as single ODT files + Mendeley for citations and bibliography. Have to take DOC/X files from contributors and build a final version, revisions done via PDF comments.

comment Is there any Word/Writer - LaTeX demonstration document available?
thanks for the links. In fact the first one is exact example of what I say - I do not see any significant difference - just small details I would normally never notice. I understand that for complicated documents with unusual formatting it would help much, but we also have things like Scribus... And I am surely not going to learn to write the code - maybe LYX, but surely not "plain latex" editor.

Martin: I know, however (as you probably know) many institutions create their documents in some office suite and in fact are not able to appreciate the difference. And migrating to LYX is time consuming so for some people would it not be enough justified. I am currently using LO with some typography addon which is able to clean the text a little.
