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 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!).

classes, CTAN, packages, LaTeX, ConTeXt, graphics, programma's, TeX
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.

The book Basisboek wiskunde (`Basic Mathematics') by Jan van de Craats and Rob Bosch was typeset in LaTeX and submitted for printing as one big pdf-file. In this book one extra color (blue) was used for titles, headings, footings, important formulas, figures and also as a background color for certain pages or parts of text. Jan van de Craats, who did the typesetting, reports on a trick for obtaining color separation without flaws.
