I'm pretty certain teTeX uses some version of LaTeX2e -- it's been the 'standard' LaTeX for many years now. Probably you can just run 'latex' and it'll tell you what version it is. teTeX includes pretty much everything you're likely to need for TeX/LaTeX work. The only things I ever added were the LyX editor and a few fonts. LyX is a truly excellent program -- I used it to write my PhD dissertation, and laughed at the other people struggling to do theirs in Word :-) HTH, Scott _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
