Many academic publishers, esp. those specializing in computer science,
math, do accept LaTeX manuscripts.

Postscript has  been the industry  standard for decades, and  more and
more electronic submissions accept also  PDF files.  Both of these can
be easiliy generated from LaTeX.

I've published a  few journal articles and conference  papers.  I only
use LaTeX.

Nowadays, I use Emacs with AUCTeX and preview-latex.  Also 'pclcvs' so
that I can use CVS to keep track of the revisions and branches.
