This is the README file for Plates, a LaTeX2e package for handling special floats Copyright (C) 2002 Anthony A.

Plates consists of the following files: - README (this file) - plates.sty - endplate.sty - plates.tex - plates.dvi - plates.pdf * Description ============= The plates package provides a simple facility for inserting color figures in documents they should be gathered and printed together --- just like in books with a section of color plates. The benefit of such a facility is to allow these special figures to be printed separately and later slipped into the final document. The package provides the plates environment to handle this situation. The user need only place these special figures in a plate environment instead of a figure environment and issue a command to print the plates at a chosen location in the document. Additional, if the author wishes to have a version of the document where the color figures are included in the text merely including the figures option will change the behavior of the plates environment to a figure environment, causing the plates to be printed directly in the text. * Changes ========= None yet! * Installation ============== To install the package, please follow these steps: - Copy the plates.sty & endplate.sty file somewhere that TeX can find them. Thats it! The other files contain the documentation in various formats.

plates – Arrange for "plates" sections of documents
The plates package provides a simple facility for inserting colour figures in a document when they should be gathered and printed together as in a book's section of colour plates. The package provides a plate environment that takes the place of the figure environment for such colour images.
