For example a lot of the SPARC documentation at sparc.org is available in
.ps format. Not that you can tell for sure, but they don't look like they
were done in LaTeX. They don't seem to take advantage of whatever it is
jumps out at you as being LaTeX in some documents, as opposed to what stuff
done in MS Word or OO looks like.
