About 5 years ago I developed some TeX files for economics working papers and journals. My model at the time was AMSTeX. I use a variant of these files for my own working papers, but I've supplemented my files with various additional macros. These files really aren't fit for public distribution but I've had so many requests for them that I will release them anyway. One of these days I might find time to get back to this package and do it right. If I were starting over I would probably use LaTeX and bibtex, but perhaps it would make sense to wait for LaTeX 3.0. Have fun with the files. Note that they are completely unsupported; don't ask me any questions about them. However, if you make significant enhancements or bug fixes I would like to see them. Hal.Varian@umich.edu July 25, 1992 -----------original readme file Here is release 1.0 of VerTeX. Please note that there are two sets of "standard" TeX fonts, the "Computer Modern" (CM) versions and the "Almost Modern" (AM) versions. Users are encouraged to switch to the final release of the CM fonts, rather than stick with the outmoded AM fonts. In VerTeX I have \font loading statements for both the CM and the AM fonts. You should comment out the font definitions that you are not using. The \font statements are at the start of vertex.tex, ppt.sty, etc. Good luck.
