I'm a bit pressed for time, so I'll have to postpone learning Scribble for a later date.  In the meantime, thanks for the reply!

But as a former HtDP'er, I've been looking for an excuse to get back into Racket, and I thought learning Scribble might be a good route to take.  I've poked through the docs a bit, and can't find any reference on math typesetting.  Can that be done in Scribble?  Or is Scribble not the right tool, and should I commit my learning efforts to Latex?  Or both?
