Virtual fonts make it easy, or one can use the ``soul'' package (space
out and underlining) available from CTAN, http://www.ctan.org
Recently there was a rather lengthy discussion on TeX's capabilities on
the website Slashdot.
If you're not put off by vulgarity and idle threats look at,
``http://www.slashdot.org'' ``Adobe Kills Framemaker for the Mac'' ---
probably you won't see anything too objectionable as long as you browse
at comments moderated to at least 1.
The bottom line is TeX is a programming language, and the only limits
to what it can do are human ingenuity, processing power / time
tradeoffs, system limitations (my current project is running up against
a filesystem size limitation, the host OS can't make files larger than
512MB) and one's ability to make such resources available.
(who was considering a presentation, ``Debunking the myths of TeX''
based on the above discussion ;)
