Typesetting

Typesetting must be very difficult stuff to do right, because when you run a check on the ‘Net today, you find the same software we endured decades ago. MacTex is more than 2 gigabytes; I don’t download that only to suffer with it. The troff derivatives are only for weird people, as they always were.
The easy typesetting is HTML, but that doesn’t really print well. Maybe we should just endure that and keep using HTML.
