It's generally the opposite: working in Org is a pleasant journey for
me... except when there are dozens of "/" and "*" in a document, and
they placed in 'unhappy' positions. For example, in phonetics the
"/ ... /" notation is used a lot, and there may be cases like:

/foo/ /bar/ /baz/

In grammar the asterisk is also used a lot, to designate that a term is
not attested or to indicate that it is ungrammatical:

*foo *bar *baz

And we can even have the combination of both:

/*foo/ /*bar/ /*baz/

And in certain cases, they are usually expressed in italics. With these
landscapes, it's worth having a few entities rather than working from
pure LaTeX, which is more accurate, but horribly more verbose.

This is a page from a book I typesetted a couple of years ago (when the
pandemic started), entirely from Org:


Best regards,
