The last time I visited a newspaper I noticed that they were not
using any kind of word processor to write the articles, instead
they were using some kind of specialized software for writing
the papers and the markup of the articles were similar to other
markup languages (I'm talking roff, nroff etc).

However, this was about 10 years ago but I don't know if things
have changed since then.
