OVERVIEW: This is LaTeX package 'wordlike' for simulating word processor layout. The package consists of these files: * wordlike.ins * wordlike.dtx * README * wordlike.pdf These packages are REQUIRED for running 'wordlike': courier, geometry, helvet, mathptmx. They are usually installed on a TeX system. INSTALLATION is done in six steps: 1. move wordlike.ins and wordlike.dtx into the same directory 2. call latex wordlike.ins -> generates wordlike.sty 3. call latex wordlike.dtx twice -> generates user guide wordlike.dvi 4. move wordlike.sty to texmf-local/tex/latex/wordlike 5. move wordlike.dvi to texmf-local/doc/latex/wordlike 6. call mktexlsr/texhash for updating TeX's file name database CHANGEs v1.2a 2006/03/29 Broken v1.1 on CTAN replaced by fixed local v1.2a Hint to the arial package added COPYING: This is free software. The latest version of the LPPL is applicable to all parts of this package. Please see http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt for details.

wordlike – Simulating word processor layout
The package simulates typical word processor layout: narrow page margins, Times, Helvetica and Courier fonts, \LARGE or \Large headings, and \sloppy typesetting.
The package aims at making life easier for users who are discontent with LaTeX's standard layout settings because they need a layout that resembles the usual “wordlike” output.
The design of the package draws on several discussions in the de.comp.text.tex and comp.text.tex newsgroups that are referred to in the manual.
