LaTeX Your Document

LaTeX (pronounced Lah-tech) is a markup language (like HTML) used for typesetting books, articles, letters, slides, and papers. Designed by Donald Knuth for his multi-volume The Art of Computer Programming, TeX (and its child LaTeX) are perfect for creating professionally-designed books, articles, and papers. In LaTeX, you can easily enter the most complex mathematical expressions, have a book with hundreds of graphics and tables that would crash Word, and juggle hundreds of citations and your bibliography with ease. The best part of LaTeX is its price tag. Thanks to Don Knuth's generosity, LaTeX is free!
