### LaTeX forum ⇒ General ⇒ LaTeX vs HTML

HTML发表于 1 年前

Hi,

I used LaTeX as a requirement for one of my undergrad units back in 2009, but haven't used it since. Since I'm doing an honours year this year which requires a thesis, my research supervisor recommended me to use LaTeX since I do already know it. Just thinking about it though, I'm struggling to come up with a reason as to why I should use LaTeX over plain old HTML (and CSS). As a developer, I use HTML and CSS all the time, and it seems like they could achieve the same advantages as LaTeX compared to a (dare I say it) Word Processor. So why do you guys use LaTeX when you can use HTML and CSS, which is much more widely used?
