All my data are going to be articles with graphs and tabulations in Excel format. Each article is associated with an author. The web site is designed to receive articles and store them in a database. Later on, some of the articles will be viewed on-line in a style like those papers in professional journals. Are relational databases such as MySQL good at storing and handling these kind of data?

Digital copy of articles. Articles are in word processing formats, including WordPerfect (all versions), Microsoft Word (all versions), and HTML documents.
Digitized graphics. Graphic images, diagrams, etc., are in some scalable (vector) format, like .WMF or .CGM, or bitmap formats like .PCX, .GIF, .TIF, etc. May be required to work with Macintosh formats as well as PC formats.
I agree. Here's the link:
