       This manual page is not meant to be  exhaustive.   The  complete  documentation  for  this
       version of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The  LaTeX language is described in the book LaTeX - A Document Preparation System.  LaTeX
       is a TeX macro package, not  a  modification  to  the  TeX  source  program,  so  all  the
       capabilities described in tex(1) are present.

       The  LaTeX  macros encourage writers to think about the content of their documents, rather
       than the form.  The ideal, very difficult to realize, is to have  no  formatting  commands
       (like  ``switch  to  italic''  or  ``skip  2  picas'')  in  the  document at all; instead,
       everything is done by specific markup instructions: ``emphasize'', ``start a section''.

       The primary source of documentation for LaTeX is the LaTeX manual  referenced  below,  and
       the local guide in the file local-guide.tex or local.tex or some such.

       pdflatex,  lualatex,  and xelatex, are LaTeX formats based on the respective engines.  All
       output PDF by default.
       lambed is the Aleph-based LaTeX format (DVI output).

       On some systems latex209 and slitex are available for compatibility with older versions of
       LaTeX.  These should not be used for new texts.
