Scientific Word was designed with the scientific user in mind because you use familiar mathematical notation to enter your mathematics. It is a full document editor, not just an equation editor. It understands mathematics and automatically sizes, spaces, and positions symbols for you. You enter text and mathematics on a continuous screen without the distraction of popping in and out of equation boxes. While you are creating your document on screen, Scientific Word is creating an ASCII LaTeX file underneath---you never see the LaTeX (unless you want to look at the file with an ASCII text editor) and your mathematics appear in natural notation on screen. Since LaTeX is a mathematical typesetting standard in the publishing industry, the quality of your documents is outstanding.
Our Apple PowerMacintosh version contains OzTeX, a complete Macintosh implementation of TeX and LaTeX (by Andrew Trevorrow). For TeXtures users, we provide a special link that allows access to your TeXtures software.
