LaTeX, which is pronounced «Lah-tech» or «Laytech» is a document preparation system for highquality typesetting. It is most often used for mediumto-large technical or scientific documents but it can be used for almost any form of publishing. LaTeX encourages authors not to worry too much about the appearance of their documents but to concentrate on getting the right content. To produce a document in regular word processing systems, the author would have to decide the layout, font-size, font-type etc, which would be time consuming and the result would be badly designed documents. Whereas in LaTeX the author would leave the designing to document designers, and concentrate on the content of the document.
