PARALLEL-package (beta 4) -- typesetting two texts parallel

What is it

The PARALLEL-package provides a small tool to typeset in two columns
or on two pages parallel, e.g. if you want to set two languages besides.

Please remember: this is only an ``interim-public-beta'' until I'll 
have finished the complete documentation, the code should be fine.

parallel – Typeset parallel texts

Provides a parallel environment which allows two potentially different texts to be typeset in two columns, while maintaining alignment. The two columns may be on the same page, or on facing pages.

This arrangement of text is commonly used when typesetting translations, but it can have value when comparing any two texts.
