The boxedminipage2e package is a very simple package that essentially
just wraps a minipage within an \fbox.  However, while
\fbox{\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}...\end{minipage}} juts out into the
margin, \begin{boxedminipage}...\end{boxedminipage} does not.
Instead, it subtracts the frame's dimensions from the specified
dimensions of the minipage before typesetting the minipage.


To install boxedminipage2e, run "latex boxedminipage2e.ins" to produce
boxedminipage2e.sty.  Move boxedminipage2e.sty into a directory
searched by LaTeX (e.g., .../texmf/tex/latex/boxedminipage2e/).

boxed­mini­page2e – Framed mini­pages of a spec­i­fied to­tal width (text and frame com­bined)

The pack­age es­sen­tially just wraps a mini­page within an \fbox. How­ever, while \fbox{\be­gin{mini­page}{\linewidth}...\end{mini­page}} just out into the mar­gin, \be­gin{boxed­mini­page}...\end{boxed­mini­page} does not. In­stead, it sub­tracts the frame's di­men­sions from the spec­i­fied di­men­sions of the mini­page be­fore type­set­ting the mini­page.
