@student, they do now. I think they switched a few months after I wrote this.

comment Kan extension in beamer.
Before using that package, you should make sure they've read the author's licensing terms. For example, the license forbids use "for any military purpose under any circumstances." Additionally, under certain circumstances, if you use this package to write a book, the author requires you send him a free copy.

Thanks for the answer. Sorry it took me so long to accept it--I've been pretty busy the last few weeks.

comment What do I need in order to use TeX on Windows as an eventual replacement for Word?
+1. I like Allin Cottrell's essay on this, "Word Processors: Stupid and Inefficient" (ricardo.ecn.wfu.edu/~cottrell/wp.html).

I'll keep that in mind if I ever want to typeset a billboard using TeX.

comment Why can't pdflatex print EPS figures?
I don't know the answer to your question, but apparently there is a package called epstopdf that will convert EPS to PDF on the fly: ctan.org/tex-archive/support/epstopdf Some instructions for using this package are in the OzTeX FAQ: trevorrow.com/oztex/ozfaq.html#pdfeps These instructions don't seem OzTeX-specific, but I haven't tried them.

If you want to be really nice, once you figure this out, you should leave a template or sty file with your department so that future students don't have to reinvent your solution.

ShreevatsaR, I've edited my answer to remove mathURL, since it is the subject of another answer.

comment What is the best way to make the transition from Microsoft Word to LaTeX?
I agree with this. I compile after every paragraph and after every displayed equation.
