The package simulates typical word processor layout: narrow page margins,
Times/ Helvetica/ Courier fonts, \normalsize and \small headings, and
\sloppy typesetting. 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.

Changes as compared to v1.0:

  * Section headings now resemble more to MS Word's normal.dot
    settings by default. If you prefer a more "reserved" approach you
    may call option "basic" which supplies normalsize bold headers.
  * New \title, \author, \date commands.
  * Fixes to the manual.

Thanks for the upload.
