I've seen many of the examples you've added to the mailing list and worg. I
also enjoy using Org-mode for writing my own documents and webpages -
currently I'm using it to write my Ph.D. dissertation.
I'm curious how you work on Org-mode papers for publication with
collaborators? In particular, do all of your collaborators know and use
Org-mode themselves? Our current method is just to use ordinary LaTeX files
in a CVS repository for collaboration. I think it would be difficult to get
my collaborators to all use Org-mode - even though they all use emacs.
Org-mode has quite a bit of a learning curve that they probably don't have
the time or patience to learn currently.
