[OS X TeX] Translating LaTeX to Quark or InDesign

Not bloody likely (and I am not even British!  Well, my father's  
family was, many generations ago, and my grandfather on my mother's  
side was from Glasgow).  I use LaTeX exclusively, and I do encounter  
the occasional dumb-as-a-stick journal that demands WORD.  I simply  
challenge them: do they want my (and many others' work) or do they  
want to adhere to some totally stupid, arbitrary proprietary format.   
They always come around.  Always.  Don't believe otherwise, and  
challenge, challenge, challenge!  Don't translate: they will accept  
pdf, always, but they may need some convincing.  The fact that they  
they think some twit in typesetting should determine submission  
format usually requires no more than that statement.  C'mon people;  
we provide the content: do not accept arbitrary submission formats.
