Jewel case listings for mp3 cdroms (English)
MAPS 33, 2005, 4-13
keywords: mp3, jewel case, paragraph filling, grip, ripping, audio
abstract: Making jewel case listings for mp3 cdroms is a particular
challenge, since up to about ten times as much information
has to be on them as on jewel cases for regular audio
disks. Here TeX's abilities to adjust entire paragraphs,
as opposed to just single lines, shine at you.

Installing Expert Fonts: Minion Pro (English)
MAPS 33, 2005, 19-35
keywords: font installation, ConTeXt, expert font
abstract: Installing fonts for ConTeXt can be intimidating
business. In this issue we take on a real monster:
a collection of Adobe Minion Pro expert fonts. We
hope our installation of this collection will provide
an illustrative example for ConTeXt users, and help to
ease the pain of installing new fonts (if you can install
Minion Pro, Myriad Pro and Poetica, you can install just
about anything!).

Een uittreksel uit de recente bijdragen in het CTAN archief (Dutch)
MAPS 33, 2005, 46-51
keywords: classes, CTAN, packages, LaTeX, ConTeXt, graphics, programma's, TeX
abstract: Dit artikel beschrijft een aantal recente bijdragen uit het
CTAN archief (en mogelijk andere bronnen op het Internet).
De selectie is gebaseerd op wat ik zelf interessant vind en
wat ik denk dat voor veel anderen interessant is. Het is
dus een persoonlijke keuze. Het heeft niet de bedoeling
om een volledig overzicht te geven. De uitgebreidere
bijdragen zijn ook geen handleidingen. Beschouw het maar
als een soort menukaart die de bedoeling heeft om de lezer
lekker te maken.

background color for certain pages or parts of text. Jan

for obtaining color separation without flaws.
