New CTAN Package: Computer Typesetting Using LaTeX (in Russian)
The book "Computer Typesetting Using LaTeX" was published by the "BHV-Petersburg" (Russia) publishing house in 2008 under ISBN 978-5-9775-0230-6. Under the contract with the publishing house, I have now regained exclusive rights to the content and decided to publish it under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License (CC BY-SA 3.0). Please contact me (E.M.Baldin at inp.nsk.su) if you require a different type of copyright license for your purposes. This book is a guide to using the LaTeX document preparation system. It describes the complete fundamentals of the typesetting and layout processes and covers at least 1300 LaTeX commands and about 750 packages, styles, and classes that can be used in the typesetting of any documents. It also deals with creating presentations, table layouts, inserting graphics, bibliography and index, and many other tasks. Specific examples demonstrate that publishing systems using LaTeX can handle projects of any scope and complexity. A major part of the book is devoted to the typesetting of mathematical text, which is the key differentiator of LaTeX compared to other word processors. The book was written completely and exclusively by means of LaTeX tools. As the author of both the content and the typesetting, I will greatly appreciate any comments and useful advice on improving the quality of the electronic version of the book.
