This example demonstrates how to produce diagonal lines in table cells using the slashbox and diagbox packages.
The diagonal line produced by the slashbox package is rather jagged and unwieldy.
The diagbox package does a better job in general.
Try loading only one of these packages to see
the difference — if diagbox is loaded at all,
it overrides slashbox's behavior./p>
LaTeX is the best way to write mathematics. It completely pisses all over Word. However, it does take some time to get used to so might not be worth your while if you won't write too much. The way I use it is to first download and install a latex editor and then get writing, but I would recommend that you use this website instead since you can get going a lot quicker. The upshot of the whole business is that you type in here and then a pdf is generated with all the equations looking ace. I'll give you some examples.
This is an example of a very, very basic conference abstract booklet, with an author index. Each abstract can have an optional text that will be displayed in the margin — e.g. the time and room of the presentation.
