This book was typeset using the LaTeX document processing system, which it describes, together with substantial help from some of the extension packages it covers, and considerable extra ad hoc LaTeX programming effort.

*Body fonts*

The text body font used is Lucida Bright (Bigelow/Holmes) at 8.8pt/12pt. The other major font is the mono-spaced European Modern Typewriter (Y&Y) 10.06pt/12pt. This particular combination was chosen to get a reasonable amount of material on each page and to optically balance the appearance of the “typewriter font” so that it was distinguishable but without too big a contrast.

*Example fonts*

The text in the examples mostly uses Adobe’s Times Roman with Helvetica for sans serif. For the mathematical material in the examples we have used the by now classic Computer Modern math fonts, so the symbols will appear familiar to the majority of mathematics users. Of course, examples intended to demonstrate the use of other fonts are exceptions.
