RNA gels

I'm about do do my first RNA gel/Northern blot and I'm confused.
Why does everybody use formamide gels instead of glyoxal/DMSO
(which according to Maniatis give sharper bands)?
I would prefer not to use formamide as we don't have a fume
hood in the lab.
Any suggestions?
Any other ideas always welcome!
