BachoTeX 2003 — as of old, and some more (Dutch)
MAPS 29, 2003, 15-23
keywords: BachoTeX2003, GUST, Poland
abstract: A (partial) report of GUST's 11th meeting at Bachotek,
Poland is given. It is incomplete because I could not
understand most of the Polish contributions and I skipped
the LaTeX day. It reflects just of one of the threads
through BachoTeX03's life. A question is raised: can the
TeX-world follow with pdfTeX the evolving PDF standard?

MAPS 29, 2003, 50-52

Drawing a type-case in ConTeXt (English)
MAPS 29, 2003, 53-59
abstract: There are different environments with which one can
typeset tables; all of them have their advantages
and disadvantages. One of the recent problems I had
to solve was to draw a typesetter's type-case from the
lead-typesetting era. Since it looks like a table, I built
the drawing in the \bTABLE . . . \eTABLE environment.
