## TeX Sources and Utilities

CTAN, the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network attempts to have everything: packages, fonts, etc.- CTAN Web Home Page ( List of CTAN sites, worldwide )

- TeX and LaTeX Catalogue Packages and tools, mostly available on CTAN.
- CTAN Searc & Browseh
- For AMSTeX and AMSLaTeX the best source is AMS TeX Resources.

- TeX and LaTeX Catalogue Packages and Tools (same as above).

- Including Graphics in LaTeX by K. Hoppner.

- Viewing TeX/LaTeX files on the Internet. Two reasonable procedures are to convert to a PDF file or to use a program that converts to html.

- Convert to PDF (my preference): save the document as a pdf file, either by converting the .ps file to .pdf using, say, ps2pdf (on Unix/Linux) or else by using pdflatex. I use ps2pdf. While pdflatex has some advantages, it is a bit buggy and it's pdf files are longer.

- TeX/LaTeX to html converters (see also W3 Org's Math. Page -- primarily discusses
MathML).

One standard uses LaTeX2HTML This converts non-text (such as formulas) to gif that all WWW graphic browsers can display. Useful but far from perfect.

- Making SLIDES: Use "beamer" or "prosper." They come with a number of predefined styles. See Beamer (and Beamer article) I

Some people might prefer the package "talk". It has simple defaults, especially it lets you change between styles very easily for individual slides.

- Check out amsrefs 2.0, a LaTeX extension package (an alternative to BibTeX) for use in preparing bibliographies.

Also try MRef, a tool for creating standard references with links to MathSciNet.

- test.dvi Test if you can view TeX
dvifiles. If you can view dvi files outside of WWW, you should be able to see this by adding dvi as a MIME type.## References
