Common LaTeX Operations

No mater what kind of document you write, there are always common operations that you need to perform. For example, when writing a report or an article, you need to divide your writing into sections, add tables, include footnotes, or possibly include graphics.

This section shows you how to perform many common operations in LaTeX. These suggestions are in no way inclusive, or enumerate all of the possibilities. The goal here is to get you started with some simple versions of commands. This discussion should be augmented with a good LaTeX reference.

The output for each example is displayed in a single output document. As you read about these commands, its a good idea to take a look at the example document's source file [Insert link to examples.tex] and output file [Insert link to examples.pdf]. Also, see the LaTeX source file for this article [Insert link to mac_osx_latex.tex].
