Announcement text:

The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List is an organized list of almost 5000 symbols that are available to LaTeX users. Some of these symbols are guaranteed to be available in every TeX distribution. Others require font files that come with some, but not all, TeX distributions. The rest require font files that must be downloaded explicitly from CTAN (http://www.ctan.org) and installed. The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbols List currently showcases symbols from 111 separate typefaces. Weighing in at 4948 symbols, this version of the symbol list documents over 1600 more symbols than the previous (September 2005) version.

This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/info/symbols/comprehensive . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/comprehensive (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

## The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List – Symbols accessible from LaTeX

Over 20000 symbols accessible from LaTeX are listed in a set of tables organized by topic and package. The aim is to make it easy to find symbols and learn how to incorporate them into a LaTeX document. An index further helps locate symbols of interest.
