So, can you tell me which editor on my Windows machine will handle unicode? And
also how do I insert for example an ohmega sign in that program?

But how do you prevent people from using "direct" bold and italics in the test?
Can that be locket in OO.o? (I've not used it very much, to slow on my
machine, but in MS Office you can use paragraph and character styles the same
way, but there is no way preventing people from pressing Ctrl-B to make their
text bold (and that text will not get a character style but be directly

That is the main problem. Telling them what they should use is not problem, the
problem is to prevent the from using other ways to format the text.

That's why I love using LyX. Probably a custom made SGML or XML DTD would work
too, using for example Amaya as editor

Using HTML has a very good advantage too: You can use different CSS-files to
try out different formatting, without any changes to the text itself.
