If latex/TeX is not available, why?

Do you have latex etc installed

can you produce documents in Latex?

If you have latex, I suggest you use that for the time being. it also
has the advantage of making footnotes and reference list.

Do your fonts display in Open office or whatever document editor you
are using?
