LyX is an almost WYSIWYG-frontend for LaTeX. It makes the power and
typesetting quality of LaTeX available for people who are used to
word processors. Since LyX supports LaTeX's concept of general
mark-ups, it is even easier and faster to create professional quality
documents with it than with usual word processors. It is also
possible to use LaTeX commands within LyX, so nothing of LaTeX's
power is lost.
You can extend the functionality of LyX by installing these packages:
* chktex: check for typographical errors
* gnuhtml2latex: import HTML documents
* groff: improved table formatting in plain text exports
* latex-xcolor: for coloured change tracking
* librsvg2-bin, inkscape: use the SVG image format in LyX documents
* linuxdoc-tools: export SGML LinuxDoc documents
* mythes-*: use the Thesaurus
* noweb: import noweb files
* rcs: integrated version control
* sgmltools-lite: export SGML DocBook documents
* texlive-xetex, etoolbox: use the XeTeX typesetting system
* wv: import MS Word documents
