Title: LaT/sub E/X memos and letters

Letters and memos at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) are formatted in accordance with rules established in the Laboratory's Office Procedures Manual. LaT/sub E/X style files were written to let people produce letters and memos without worrying about a complicated set of rules. Macro and template files are distributed through the Laboratory's Change Control system for use on VAX/UNIX, VAX/VMS, Sun, Apollo, and IBMPC. A testbed of several hundred test files is used to minimize bugs in the distributed versions. There is a choice of Computer Modern fonts or PostScript fonts. Memos and letters can be printed in Roman or typewriter typefaces. When called for, classification labels will be printed on every page. Headers on pages following the first page are compiled from information found on the first page. Letters can handle multiple addresses. Default options are provided where applicable, and error messages warn users about missing information fields. 2 refs., 6 figs.
