The KOMA-Script bundle provides drop-in replacements for the 
article/report/book classes with emphasis on typography and versatility.  
There is also a letter class, different from all other letter classes.  
It also offers e.g. a package for calculated type areas in the way laid 
down by the typographer Jan Tschichold, a package for easily changing and 
defining of page styles, a package for getting not only the current date 
but also the name of day and a package for getting current time.  All 
these packages may be used not only with KOMA-Script classes but also with 
standard classes.
