That is a good suggestion, I will look into it.

What's with math equations, do you cover those?

Now this is interesting. I have been using LaTeX for the last 20 years
or even more, always with (X)Emacs + AuCTex. While I see the benefits of
org mode (especially its excellent table support) I see its deficits (in
my opinion) when it comes to editing mathematical equations. Sure I can
use cdlatex, a minor mode, which is very good and I use it even within
auctex. But there are a lot of things cdlatex can not do, nor does it
claim it could. So I am curious to know how you deal with these
