6. Introduction:

"Making Friends with LaTeX" (MFwL) started out as a small presentation, which i
used to introduce my students to LaTeX. 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
