The TeX FAQ

Frequently Asked Question List for TeX

About

This is a set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for English-speaking users of TeX. The information is maintained by a group of “curators”, with contributions from a very wide range of people over many years.

The questions answered here cover a wide range of topics, but typesetting issues are mostly covered from the viewpoint of a LaTeX user.

It’s easier to add information than it is to decide that information is no longer needed: questions are therefore not deleted but are “retired” (removed from the main index) over time.

Referencing the FAQ

The preferred URL for the FAQ is
https://texfaq.org

The previous canonical URL of
https://www.tex.ac.uk
also works at the present time but should not be used in new references.

To reference a specific question the preferred form is
https://texfaq.org/FAQ-LaTeX3
with FAQ in upper case and the question ID as given on the relevant page.

There are no redirects enabled on the hosting site, however if your client supports JavaScript and HTML redirects then other forms differing by case will also work such as
https://texfaq.org/faq-latex3
For compatibility with exiting references to the FAQ, the form
https://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=LaTeX3
may also be used, but this again relies on the client supporting JavaScript in the new hosting arrangement and is just intended to support existing references that link to the site.
