That seems like a very long a difficult process for something that could
be done directly, with a more convenient syntax, and with better looking
output, using LaTeX.  ;)

Of course that has nothing to do with this thread, except perhaps the
fact that many people, including myself, use Emacs exclusively for word
processing by using it to edit LaTeX.  That may well be the best way to
use Emacs as a word processor.
