I have been working with LaTeX since about thirteen years and enjoy the simple beauty of the generated documents.

My interests lie in the creation of documentations and the automation of typesetting. Some of my German & English articles can be found here: http://uweziegenhagen.de/?page_id=159

I am member and board member of Dante e.V. (http://www.dante.de), the German-speaking TeX/LaTeX users group and contribute regularly to Dante's magazine, the "Die TeXnische Komödie".

Yes, Markdown is a nice approach. Check out PanDoc.

RTF and RTF2DOCX conversion. RTF is an ASCII based format. But easier than Tex???

Well, you could write the underlying XML and have the WORD GUI render it.

comment Add (n) working days to a specific date
Oh I see. I didn't see the "workday" requirement. The scrdate package can tell you the weekday for a specific date. I guess that and advdate could bring a suitable way (it's beyond my knowledge)

comment Calendar in LaTeX
Some years ago I created calendar sheets for my filofax. I wasn't able to implement a pure LaTeX solution so I used PHP to generate the code. I guess, I'd use Excel or Python now to calculate the weekdays and TikZ for the layout.

It's fairly easy to follow these rules with LaTeX. I have seen much worse, believe me!

comment How do I make Kile create a new folder for each .tex file I compile?
I don't see any way that this is possible with Kile. Embedding files in the PDF is possible but they have to be written to the disk before they are included, since pdflatex cannot access certain parts of the PDF container. You also need to be aware that those external files are used by other executables (biber, xindy) that definitely cannot extract the from the PDF.

comment Are there good comprehensive lists of LaTeX commands online?
Have look at lshort.pdf, it gives a good overview and should cover most of what you need: tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/lshort/english The wikipedia overview may be helpful if you know what you're looking for: en.wikibooks.org/wiki/LaTeX/Command_Glossary

comment How to achieve the indentation/spacing in this document?
Just use a table/several tables with two columns, set to absolute width with p columntype, longtableshould work as well. The booktabs package might come handy to have the lines in a nice way.
