This book shows readers how to begin using &latex; to create
high-quality documents. It also serves as a reference for all &latex;
users. In this completely revised edition, the authors cover the
&latex2e; standard and offer more details,
examples, exercises, tips, and tricks. They go beyond the core
installation to describe the key contributed packages that have become
essential to &latex; processing.

In the book, readers will find:

- Complete coverage of &latex; fundamentals, including how to input text, symbols, and mathematics; how to produce lists and tables; how to include graphics and color; and how to organize and customize documents
- Discussion of more advanced concepts such as bibliographical databases and &bibtex;, math extensions with &amslatex;, drawing, slides, and letters
- Helpful appendices on installation, error messages, creating packages, using &latex; with HTML and XML, and fonts
- An extensive alphabetized listing of commands and their uses

New to this edition:

- More emphasis on &latex; as a markup language that separates content and forms
- Detailed discussions of contributed packages alongside relevant standard topics
- In-depth information on PDF output, including extensive coverage of how to use the hyperref package to create links, bookmarks, and active buttons.

The accompanying CD-ROM is part of the &tex; Live set. It contains a full &latex; installation for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux, as well as many extensions, including those discussed in the book.
