Where Can I find Sources for Learning LaTex?

Ryan Kirkpatrick Use Lyx, WYSIWYM Latex Interface (116 comments)

Unless you feel you need the full, raw power of LaTeX, I would recommend using Lyx. It is a 'what-you-see-is-what-you-mean' graphic editor for LaTeX. I used it all through college for writing electrical engineering lab reports, and it was many time easier to use than Word. The result was so beautiful it even blew away my professors. And that was a few years ago, so it is probably even better now.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
