However, with the release of Ver 1.00 in Jauary 2006, I received a lot of feedback on the presentation and I therefore decided to extend it. The second version, made using the powerdot package, has been extended and currently this presentation stands at 64 slides; more than double from its first version The objective of MFwL is to introduce new comers to LaTeX and make them aware of various aspects of working with LaTeX. It covers: (a) LaTeX Advocacy (b) LateX Document Structure (c) Paragraph Mode and Math Mode (d) Structuring the document (e) Creating Tables, Graphics (in very short) (f) BibTeX (g) Recommendations for a LaTeX system (h) References for further reading It's objective is not to make a person expert in using LaTeX but to get the person interested in LaTeX by making him understand the LaTeX way of working. The intention is that once the person is comfortable with the idea s/he can then explore the wonders of LaTeX on his/her own pace 7. Feedback: Please feel free to give your feedback. The Only request is that in the subject line please include "MFwL". This will help me filter mails and respond quickly 9. Date of Release: 9th October 2006 10.
