Announcement TeX90 Conference (English)
MAPS 4, 1990, 31-32
keywords: TUG conference, Cork
abstract: The 1990 TeX meeting in Europe is the fifth such conference
organised since 1985. It also breaks new ground as the first to
be a TeX Users Group (TUG) meeting outside North America. The
TeX computer typesetting program is now widely established as
the de facto standard in scientific, educational and commercial
use for the setting of documents requiring very high standards
of typographic control, particularly technical documents, and
for applications where high quality, portability and
device-independence are of importance.

The Development of National LaTeX styles (English)
MAPS 4, 1990, 61-66
keywords: LaTeX, national styles
abstract: In its autumn 1988 meeting, the Dutch TeX users group
(NTG) established a working group (number 13) that was to
concentrate on the problems involved in the use of TeX
for Dutch texts. Since then the working group, which
includes the authors, has created a number of style
options for LaTeX that remedy some common problems
with the non-English use of LaTeX, and is on its way
developing document styles that are compatible with the
standard styles, but have a layout that is more palatable
for Dutch users. In this article we treat implementation
aspects of the styles and style options, and we discuss
some matters of layout.

Unusual paragraph shapes (English)
MAPS 4, 1990, 67-70
keywords: paragraph shapes
abstract: Although the TeXbook states that TeX's paragraph
mechanism `can be harnessed to a surprising variety of tasks',
the strangest paragraph shapes that I have implement use no
feature of the line-breaking algorithm. Instead, I have found
that the control sequences \everypar and \lastbox
are extremely powerful tools. I give three examples of this.

Teaching TeX: Critics & LaTeX proposal (English)
MAPS 4, 1990, 77-82
keywords: education, courseware, modules
abstract: Some critics — mainly LaTeX based — on the approach
are given: TeXnically driven instead of result driven.
Also is notified the omission of a general pedagogical
method to be used. Furthermore, it is urged to have
unified courseware. A set of LaTeX courses is proposed.
No test set is included. The underlying idea of having TUG
certified courses world-wide is strongly endorsed.

Wat is TeX? (Dutch)
MAPS 4, 1990, 83-88
abstract: In de huidige tijd van WYSIWYG `desktop publishing'
systemen lijkt het vreemd een systeem te propageren met
honderden, vaak ingewikkelde, instructies. Wat het
tekstopmaaksysteem TeX desondanks aantrekkelijk maakt,
is het feit dat het programmeerbaar is: de
basisinstructies kunnen worden samengevoegd tot zeer
gecompliceerde instructies die een eenmaal ontworpen
opmaak geheel automatisch feilloos reproduceren. Hierdoor
hoeft de gebruiker uitsluitend nog de structuur van het
document aan te geven en niet de vormgeving, het
uiterlijk, ervan. Met deze gedachte sluit TeX nauw aan
bij recente ontwikkelingen in de uitgeverswereld omtrent
SGML.
