Notes on using LaTeX

I have been using LaTeX to output my essays since my undergraduate days. I like the clean seperation between content and styling that it provides, as well as the wonderful output quality.

(I started via the LyX processor, which usefully hides some of the complexities, but then went on to using Markdown+Pandoc to programmatically generate LaTeX)

The embark on this journey, you will firstly need a TeX installation, head to the TeX Users Group site, download an installation, and read through the getting started document.
