Are you sure? Can you be more specific?

If you are more specific, there are groups that can
help you with that in an instant. Try alt.os.linux or
debian.user (as Xubuntu is a Debian fork, way back).

LaTeX is not difficult and you can learn it very
fast. However, if you are stuck at work with Words all
day long it might not be an option right now, but it is
not difficult, trust me - and especially if you set up
templates (or skeletons) as has been suggested by me
and others. I'm not telling you what to do, I'm only
saying it is not difficult.
