Agreed, but on the other hand, my experience is that scholars and authors who
use LaTeX can understand quickly and intuitively why it would be so valuable
to a person working in an eyes-free environment.

I write everything in LaTeX using Emacs, except Web pages which I code in
HTML. TeX4HT makes it trivially easy to produce HTML or XHTML versions of
LaTeX documents as a complement to the typeset PDF versions.
