the beauty of LaTeX

I recently found a very nice site about the beauty of LaTeX. It does a close comparison of the type of output you get with LaTeX as opposed to what you normally get with a program like Microsoft Word. There is also another nice article that it links to near the bottom comparing hyphenation using several different typesetting and word-processing programs. I will let you read about the rest yourself:
