It produces semantically valid output as PDF, HTML, PostScript, and more.
If you would like to get a feel for the output:

LyX will do all that you require including the generation of a table of

see the following:
The above includes a table of contents, list of figures, list of tables,
index, bibliography, floating figures and so forth. You needn't pay for any
