This should appear at your local mirror within a day. Thanks again, Jim Hef{}feron Saint Michael's College ........................................................................................ The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: dashundergaps Version number: 1.0 Author's name: Merciadri Luca Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib Summary description: Aims at helping the LaTeX user at underlining a given set of words License type: lppl Announcement text:
Briefly, this package aims at helping the LaTeX user at underlining a given set of words by either a line (using \underline{text}), dots (using \dotuline{text}) or even a dashed line (using \dashuline{text}). Various options were implemented for this. This can be used in conjunction with the phantomtext option, which allows the user to write a text with gaps, e.g. for a completion by students. These gaps can be completed with the real input using the teachernotes option. Please note that this is a really basic package. For more info on it, please look at the manual.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/dashundergaps . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/dashundergaps (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

## dashundergaps – Produce gaps that are underlined, dotted or dashed

The package provides commands (\underline, \dotuline and \dashuline) each of which underlines its argument with one of the styles the package is capable of. A phantom mode is provided, where the underline (of whatever form) can serve for a ‘fill-in block’ for student evaluation sheets.
