"LaTeX is a document preparation system. When writing, the writer uses plain text
as opposed to the formatted text found in WYSIWYG ("what you see is what you get")
word processors. The writer uses markup tagging conventions to define the general
structure of a document (such as article, book, letter, or thesis), to stylise text
throughout a document (such as bold and italics), and to add citations and cross-references.
A TeX distribution such as TeX Live or MikTeX is used to produce an output file (such
as PDF or DVI) suitable for printing or digital distribution. Within the typesetting
system, its name is stylised as LaTeX."
