Announcement text: 
The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List is an organized list of almost
5000 symbols that are available to LaTeX users.  Some of these symbols
are guaranteed to be available in every TeX distribution.  Others
require font files that come with some, but not all, TeX
distributions.  The rest require font files that must be downloaded
explicitly from CTAN (http://www.ctan.org) and installed.  The
Comprehensive LaTeX Symbols List currently showcases symbols from 111
separate typefaces.

Weighing in at 4948 symbols, this version of the symbol list documents
over 1600 more symbols than the previous (September 2005) version.


This package is located at
