Thanks, that was a good intro. It looks like I could almost get 
away with a simple LaTeX table for the form. But I can see 
myself getting bogged down by the details; I think latex is 
going to be "too hard" for this project. I may still come back 
to it as best option though.

And it was good to get the LaTeX basics, I can start thinking 
about how I can use it for the next project.

Thanks again for the info.
