Hello Folks,

I'm currently using TeXMAKER, a GUI LaTeX editor from 

I don't have any issues with this program -- it works fine, and I'm very happy 
with it.

If I type the word \LaTeX -- within LaTeX -- it will typeset the LaTeX logo, 
as seen at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaTeX, irrespective of whether I use 
TeXMAKER, or VIM-LaTeX, or emacs-auctex. The result is the same.

In my day-to-day work, I also use the LaTeX editor LyX from 

In my writing, I want to typeset the LyX logo within LaTeX -- where the y in 
LyX is in uppercase lettering, and slightly lowered. Like the letter e in TeX 
or LaTeX or MikTeX.

Is there a way of being able to do this? I can do this within LyX, but not in 

I've scoured forums, and helpsites, with no luck.
