Summary description: A Visual LaTeX FAQ

Announcement text:
Having trouble finding the answer to a LaTeX question -- or struggling
to find the words to express your question?  The Visual LaTeX FAQ is
an innovative new search interface that presents over a hundred
typeset samples of frequently requested document formatting.  Simply
click on a hyperlinked piece of text that matches what you want to
achieve -- or what you want to prevent -- and the Visual LaTeX FAQ
will send your Web browser to the appropriate page in the UK TeX FAQ.

The 2015-10-15 version of the Visual LaTeX FAQ includes the following

* support for newer TeX distributions

* higher-resolution bitmapped images

* workaround for the UK TeX FAQ's loss of its label=A+B+C feature

* visualization for "Facing floats on 2-page spread" (label=dpfloat)

* visualization for "Numbers too large in table of contents, etc."

* visualization for "The format of the Table of Contents, etc."

* visualization for "Repeating a command n times" (label=repeat-num)

* visualization for "Repeating something for each 'thing' in a set"

This package is located at
