[Maxima] Printing out results

There many ways to incorporate Maxima calculations within a document
depending on the need.
What I have been using these days is to use Google docs for collaboration
and then add Maxima calculations as images as shown here
It is not the most elegant way but it does the job.
The best is to get latex output through texout command and incorporate that
into a latex document and then do
latex > dvi > ps or PDF
However, that requires proficiency in Latex. Most of the math graduates have
that knowledge but students in Engineering don't. Also, pure math documents
involve text and equations and latex works just fine for them. The
incorporation of images in a latex document requires additional knowledge.
Even I find adding images to a latex document cumbersome.
