Overview

This is an easy-to-follow tutorial on the most popular text processing system used in the academic community. It explains formatting fundamentals and the more complex techniques for typesetting mathematical formulas. It is useful as a resource for those with access to the previous version (LATEX 2.09) who want to update themselves on the latest version - LATEX 2.

The book is aimed at anyone interested in text processing and in particular those wanting to use LATEX to produce high quality documents. LATEX 2e is suitable for people with no previous LATEX experience.

Written from the users point of view, this edition features many entirely new commands, replacing obsolete material as well as an appendix describing the main differences between old version LATEX 2.09 and the new version. There is also a glossary of all basic LATEX 2 commands.

Many of the typesetting examples from the book are coded as templates and are available on the accompanying Website.
