  • Expanded material on the setup and use of fonts to access a huge collection of glyphs, and to typeset text from a wide range of languages and cultures
  • Major new packages for graphics, "verbatim" listings, floats, and page layout
  • Full coverage of the latest packages for all types ofdocuments--mathematical, multilingual, and many more
  • Detailed help on all error messages, including those troublesome low-level TeX errors
