wordlike – Simulating word processor layout

The pack­age sim­u­lates typ­i­cal word pro­ces­sor lay­out: nar­row page mar­gins, Times, Hel­vetica and Courier fonts, \LARGE or \Large head­ings, and \sloppy type­set­ting.

The pack­age aims at mak­ing life eas­ier for users who are dis­con­tent with LaTeX's stan­dard lay­out set­tings be­cause they need a lay­out that re­sem­bles the usual “word­like” out­put.

The de­sign of the pack­age draws on sev­eral dis­cus­sions in the de.comp.text.tex and comp.text.tex news­groups that are re­ferred to in the man­ual.
