[school-discuss] software to demo = LyX


I just learned about LyX last spring.  I teach 9th grade students at all
academic levels.  We use LyX for writing reports and letters.  When a
student does a report it LyX, it formats it beautifully =  giving it a
cover page, and bibliography page at the end.  It also automatically
puts in the date and numbers the pages.  The other teachers are pleased
to receive reports written in LyX.

I'm a big LyX fan, but this is the first time I've seen it being used in

a K-12 context rather than in universities (where LaTeX is popular in 
maths and hard sciences).  How do students and teachers react to LyX?
