This is the file `00readme.chs', which accompanies the `chemsym' package distribution. The package defines commands for the chemical symbols of the elements, which always are type-set in upright font, as they should. If not followed by a stoichiometric number, a small space is inserted. To use the package, run LaTeX on `chemsym.ins'. This produces the files `chemsym.sty', which contains the macro definitions, and `pertab.tex' which contains the LaTeX code for the Periodic Table of the Elements. To obtain the userguide and documentation, run LaTeX on `chemsym.dtx' after running LaTeX on `chemsym.ins'. The 'chemsym' package consists of two files: chemsym.ins - the installation driver chemsym.dtx - the macro code, instructions on how to use the package, an example, and the code for the Periodic Table in `docstrip'-able format. Anyone is free to re-distribute these files provided the restrictions mentioned in 'chemsym.ins' are obeyed. These are mainly that the two files always must be distributed together and that noone is allowed to distribute the files for profit. Inquiries can be sent to: <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
