LaTeX for Beginners
TeX is a compiled typesetting language for producing beautiful books and articles, as well as PowerPoint-like presentations, letters, business cards, and other kinds of documents. TeX is especially adept at typesetting complicated mathematics.
Camera-ready output can be in either PostScript or Adobe PDF format. Utilities are available to convert between TeX and RTF, XML, and HTML. TeX justifies Text by paragraph, rather than by line, producing superior justification, and adds features of fine typesetting, such as kerning and ligatures. TeX understands the special hyphenation rules of many languages, and can set in Arabic, Hebrew, Devanagari and other scripts as well.
The TeX format, LaTeX, provides the structures for large documents, such as tables of contents, sectioning, cross-references, footnotes, endnotes, and running headers. New features can be defined at will, and a large library of such features is available on the Internet. It includes BibTeX, a bibliography-management program analogous to EndNote, and MakeIndex, an index-management program which can be used with LaTeX or with printer’s galleys.
