LaTeX is a TeX macro package, originally written by Leslie Lamport, that provides a document processing system. LaTeX allows markup to describe the structure of a document, so that the user need not think about presentation. By using document classes and add-on packages, the same document can be produced in a variety of different layouts.

Some sample LaTeX (from http://www.northernjourney.com/opensource/newbies/newb020.html):

\documentstyle{letter}
\address{586 Linux Drive \\ Port Debian, ON \\ L5G 9X9}

\begin{document}
\begin{letter}{Ima Texhead, Sr. \\
486 BSD Way \\
Berkeley, CA 95587}

Hope you're proud to see I'm using \LaTeX, just like you, Dad. Now that
I've arrived, I could use some cash for a new Linux system.

Sorry I didn't use email but I love the look of \LaTeX\ output.

\closing{Thanks,}
