The package simulates typical word processor layout: narrow page
margins, Times/ Helvetica/ Courier fonts, \normalsize and \small
headings, and \sloppy typesetting. It aims at making life easier for
those users who are discontent with LaTeX's standard layout settings

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 v1.1:

  * Broken v1.1 on CTAN replaced by fixed local v1.2a (thanks to
    Martin Wilhelm Leidig for point out this problem which is my
    fault, sorry about that...).
  * Hint to the arial package added.


Thanks for the update.
