I see all over the web that LaTeX specializes in correct presentation of mathematical formulas, used widely in science, engineering, math, and other highly technical fields.
I would like to have something similar to use for my non-technical writing. I'd like proper support for headings, footnotes, citations, and so on. I'm aware of markdown, but I'm thinking several notches up from that in sophistication. I'm not interested in WYSIWYG solutions, and I'm not interested in proprietary ones, either.
Anyone know of anything that matches this description? Or would LaTeX still be the way to go?
