Re: CTAN has a new package: visualtex

LyX is interesting, but it is not TeX (can not edit TeX directly)

It's focused on LaTeX, not TeX, and allows one to import LaTeX
documents (with varying degrees of success --- I use it for new work,

it is trying to be WYSIWYG.

No, it is trying to be ``What You See Is What You Mean'', _not_
WYSIWYG. It's that difference which makes it interesting, innovative
and uniquely useful.
