I'm looking for a document format that will be suitable for a large number of notes that I take.
I'm mostly concerned with:
- Future proof (so that I can always access my notes even if I switch operating systems or word processors)
- Embedding (ability to embed images, tables, code blocks, math equations etc.)
- Relatively easy to access and edit (counter example would be PDF)
Would LaTeX be a good candidate?
From what I understand .tex files aren't the best when it comes to reading straight from them, but can you compile the .tex file to something other than PDF?
How hard would it be to maintain a database full of LaTeX files?
