[straying more than slightly off-topic]
If you are a fan of the structured/sanitized approach to data management
you might enjoy the LyX word(document)-processor. It's a WYSIWYM frontend
to the LaTeX typesetting language, and to use the vernacular- it rocks.
For writing manuscripts there is little better.  http://www.lyx.org

The Help->getting started documentation is very good and will change the
way you think about writing documents.
