Description:
TEX is a large and complicated program that goes to extraordinary lengths to produce attractive typeset material. However, straightforward text is very easy to typeset using TEX. So it’s possible to start with easier text and work up to more complicated situations. The purpose of this manual is to start from the very beginning and to move towards these more complicated situations. No previous knowledge of TEX is assumed. By proceeding a section at a time, greater varieties of text can be produced.
