As one of the people referred to who has attempted a Techwriter/LaTeX converter I have to say that I see no evidence that LaTeX is on the way out for mathematical documents. The point of LaTeX output is not that it will reproduce the TW document, but that documents written in TW (as most of my researhc and teaching material is) can easily be translated into LaTeX in the format desired by the publisher. As has been pointed out above, there is no need to reproduce the tW document exactly. And if TW had LaTeX output, I could produce mathematical text in Word format (for exams) and LaTeX for research very easily. With LyX, could I produce Word output? (I have not used it myself, we tend to use mikTeX.)
