CTAN package update: a mexican dialect of spanish

Date: January 30, 2008 9:14:44 PM CET
The package below has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your local mirror. Thank you, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College .......................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: a mexican dialect of spanish Author's name: Luis Rivera Location on CTAN: /language/spanish/nonstandard/mx Summary description: language and configuration files to typeset spanish in mexico License type: lppl Announcement text:
Fixed an unfortunate choice of filename: on some distributions, the included spanish.cfg was automatically installed, thus becoming automatically default; the file has been renamed to esmx.cfg, so you have to create the spanish.cfg file, if not present, and type `\include esmx.cfg' explicitly into spanish.cfg to make the mexican spanish default. The README file has been updated accordingly. With my apologies to all users affected.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/language/spanish/nonstandard/mx . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/spanish-mx (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 .

spanish-mx – Typeset Spanish as in Mexico

The bundle provides files to support typesetting of texts in Spanish according to Mexican current practices, using babel. The files merge earlier work on a mexican.ldf, or may be used to define a configuration that will typeset all documents (that request babel’s spanish option) to use the Mexican language facilities. (Note that this facility is only available with version >=4.2b releases of the Spanish option.)

However, according to the author, the purpose of this package is nowadays better served by the babel package with option spanish.mexico.
