What prompted me to mention org mode, is that org mode is the way I
quickly create documents like RMS' sample pdf file.

I whip up a small .org file, fill it with content, and export it to the
desired format, and that's that.

So I overlooked the WYSWIG bit of the request since it's not something I
need, or even want, for the "small, nicely formatted PDFs, quickly
created" use case.
