You can create beautiful documents with the T_{E}X typesettingsystem. This was developed by Donald Knuth to utilize the power of computers in handling the detailsof fine typesetting. In particular, T_{E}X knows the rules for choosing the correct font sizes and spacing between characters in typesetting mathematical formulas. Bring the solution to one of your homework assignments, and we will go to the computer lab to see how easy this is.
