The purpose of this manual is to start from the very beginning and to move towards more complicated situations. No previous knowledge of TeX is assumed. By proceeding a section at a time, greater varieties of text can be produced.
LaTeX is a macro package created to typeset documents attractively and consistently. This guide to the LaTeX markup language can serve as a useful resource for everyone from new users who wish to learn, to old hands who need a quick reference.

LaTeX is particularly suited to the production of long articles and books, since it has facilities for the automatic numbering of chapters, sections, theorems, equations etc., and also has facilities for cross-referencing.

Many conventions you are using in the typesetting of plain text are inappropriate to maths. LATEX goes a long way to help you along with the style. This handout assumes that you have already read the Advanced LaTeX document.
