On Sat, 18 Feb 2006, Juergen Fenn submitted the new package


to CTAN.

Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/wordlike
Licence: LPPL

The package consists of these files:

 * wordlike.ins
 * wordlike.dtx
 * README	with some hints to installing the package

Wordlike.sty is a simple package that may be used to simulate word
processor layout:

 * Narrow page margins (2,5 cm)
 * Times/ Helvetica/ Courier fonts
 * \normalsize + \small headings, and
 * \sloppy typesetting (sic!) throughout

are provided. The package aims at making life easier for those users
who are discontent with LaTeX's standard layout settings because they
need a layout that resembles the usual "wordlike" output. The package
draws on several discussions in the de.comp.text.tex and comp.text.tex
newsgroups that are referred to in the manual.

Thanks for the upload.

For the CTAN Team
