*LaTeX* FAQ: "How do I use font colors in LaTeX?"

Defining and using font colors in LaTeX documents turns out to be pretty easy, and it's a great LaTeX feature. Although my choice of colors may leave something to be desired, this example requirements specification was written with LaTeX, and converted to HTML using the latex2html conversion program.

In the example below I'm showing how you can change a bunch of LaTeX document length parameters. The values don't really make any sense -- I've just thrown some numbers in there. I just want to remember how to do this for the next time I need to create a LaTeX PDF document.

(For what I'm trying to achieve today my goal was to get rid of all the margins on the left side of the page. Then I decided to throw in a few other values.)

I found some of these LaTeX examples on pp. 84-89 of The LaTeX Companion.

A LaTeX strikeout font example: It was hard to find out how to use a strikethrough font using LaTeX, and I don't want to lose it, so here's a simple example.

% % include the "ulem" package in the header % \usepackage{ulem} % % use the "sout" tag to "strike through" text % \sout{Bill Clinton} G.W. Bush is the pres.

Run through the `latex2html`

converter, this produces output text like this:

Here's a sample *LaTeX* document where I'm experimenting with `newenvironment`

, a definition list, and tables (the tabular environment. I don't have the output with me at the moment, but I think all of these worked correctly when using pdflatex (LaTeX PDF) and latex2html (LaTeX HTML).

Here is some example *LaTeX* code where I'm experimenting with image inclusion, as well as tags like `htmlonly`

, `latexonly`

, and the `alltt`

environment.

This LaTeX example/test file was created for tests with the pdflatex (LaTeX PDF) and latex2html (LaTeX HTML) utilities. This is definitely not for newbies.
