Yes, but according to the math logicians it did poorly with logic symbols 
and the greek font (if WPerfect had them at all). For a very small 
subset of the math symbols that we get now in TeX, there was ChiWriter 
graphical editor in those days: I typeset my PhD thesis with it, between 
Moskow and Sofia, and each time spent weeks, if not a month, transferring 
the font drivers (somehow, runing around friends in all insitutions to 
try on their computers this and that font driver).

It seems we have forgotten that TeX/LaTex was the discovery of the 
discoveries. And no need to run across town for help  :)
