LaTeX is the premiere software system used for presenting technical information. It is considered the system of choice for writers in mathematics, the sciences, computer science and engineering who need to present formulae and technical information in a clear and elegant manner. It is also increasingly used by non-technical writers interested in superior printing and document presentation. However, users of this ubiquitous software need to know much more than how to use basic style files or LaTeX commands. They need to know how to integrate Tex - the original version of LaTeX - with other commercially available software and hardware. People also need clear, accurate and brief instructions and solutions to many common problems. This book is intended to provide these valuable aids. It also explains how to use LaTex or Tex with files prepared with everyday office software such as Lotus or Wordperfect, and how to set up software links with Acrobat and hyper-text using LaTex for Internet communication. This book is intended for TeX users, desktop publishers and technical writers.show more
