I think "this purpose", in this case, means "collaborating with people
using MS Word".  That being the case, LyX is sort of the opposite of what
he needs, even if it handles equation work excellently for print --
because, of course, it *doesn't* handle MS Word DOC format at all.

At least, it didn't the last time I checked.  I imagine the LyX
maintainers haven't suddenly jumped on the "interoperate with MS Office"
bandwagon lately.
