Toolbox: let's keep things plain (English)
MAPS 21, 1998, 28-30
keywords: plain TeX, LaTeX, integrating, toolbox
abstract: This Toolbox follows the eclectic approach that most readers will
know from previous ones. Without aiming to give a comprehensive
oversight of the logic behind them, I present some plain
TeX-commands that can be used directly in LaTeX. As the editors
of this journal decided to make English the preferred language for
contributions, this column is no longer in Dutch. However, as far as
my limited command of the language allows, I will try to keep the
tone informal and the discussion accessible to novice users.

Poland, in August of this year. The following is the impression
of the authors who tried to attend all the talks. Unfortunately a
couple of the talks were not attended by either of the authors.
Apologies to those authors.

Parameterized data for tables in TeX — Dynamics, aha! (English)
MAPS 21, 1998, 35-39
keywords: BLUe, btable, code tables, data generation, dynamical markup, parameterization, tables, tail recursion
abstract: The issue of generating and using parameterized data for tables
in TeX is elaborated upon. The automatic insertion of markup
along with the use of parameterized markup and the
\btable macro is not the issue, but are prerequisites.
\btable's use, along with the automatic insertion of
markup in the data as such, can be seen as tools, stepping
stones, which made it possible to concentrate on pure data
generation, or its use in typesetting tables by TeX.

Poor man's cyrillics on a Mac — TeXing English and Russian (English)
MAPS 21, 1998, 40-41
keywords: cyrillics, MIME, Macintosh, pdfTeX
abstract: The typesetting in TeX of English mixed with Russian is
discussed for a Macintosh. Starting from the WNCY-fonts only a
few extra control sequences have to be remembered for the
keyboarding. The approach is suitable for all machines which
have the WNCY-fonts. Email in cyrillics can be handled by
formating via pdfTeX and sending the .pdf file as attachment
in a MIME message.

Minimal markup — expansion in the gullet, aha! (English)
MAPS 21, 1998, 42-48
keywords: BLUe, crosswords, expansion, fifo, look ahead, minimal markup, mouth processing, preprocessing, tables, tail recursion
abstract: A plea is made for a reappraisal of TeX's capabilities of
expansion in the gullet of minimal marked up scripts into
complete marked up scripts. Attention is focused on expansion
of implicitly marked up table data by spaces and e-o-l-s into
data separated by \cs and \rs, the abstract but explicit
column and row separators, respectively. The ultimate aim is
that the processing tool can't be distilled from the `marked up'
script.

Catching up — PDF and HTML at the heart (English)
MAPS 21, 1998, 49-52
keywords: internet, HTML, multi-media, PDF, pdfTeX, PostScript, WWW
abstract: New hardware not only urged me to get TeX & Co running
again, in a richer environment, but I had also to catch up with
developments since. Most noteworthy in relation with TeX and
documents, are the acceptance of the PDF exchange format and the
HTML format, next to the realization of multi-media.

technical documents the ConTeXt module units was
developed. When this module is loaded all SI-units are
available. Seldom used and/or complex units can be defined by
the user with the command \unit[]{}{}.

within math environments, and attempt to suggest effective means
of accessing a larger variety of font options, while avoiding
typographic nonsense.
