Thanks Norbert.

I have all three installed and in use. My current project is
building a PDF version of a manual for a software programme where
the developer wants to use markdown, but I've created the manual
using latex. So I'm building a markdown PDF using pandoc, but, in
my opinion, the latex PDF looks the best and is easiest to read and
use. But the ultimate decision is his :)
