I'm getting ready to submit my first paper, and I have a stupid question -- if a journal's guidelines say that they want "submissions in TeX," does that mean that I can submit a LaTeX source file, or do I have to rewrite my paper in plain TeX?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
I am extremely confident that they will accept and most likely prefer LaTeX, and they simply were imprecise in writing their submission guidelines. I base this on the fact that LaTeX is extremely widespread in the mathematical world and is what every journal I have dealt with expected.
But, if you want, you certainly could e-mail the editor to check.
