[Texmacs-dev] [Documentation] New user misunderstanding

I encountered a new TeXmacs user who had no previous exposure to LaTeX.
He did not understand $math mode$, and thought that to type mathematics,
the whole document had to be in math mode.  He was complaining that
formatting didn't work right...

It was easy to explain, but having this experience, I can say that the
folks writing the tutorial and beginner documentation should keep in
mind that many folks out there have never used anything but a
conventional word processor or text editor, and have no exposure to
LaTeX or TeX typesetting.  Square one.
