AbiWord is, by design, a classic WYSIWYG word processor, so I don't think
we'll ever turn into LyX, but I can envision a feature mix based on:
- paragraph and character styles (which are very rudimentary now) and
- document templates (which we don't have at all yet)
which would allow people to become much less presentation-oriented when
authoring. If you're interested in improving our existing style sheet
support to get closer to this goal, let us know.
Ditto for templates. :-)
