Screen presentations, manuscripts, and posters from the same LaTeX source

David Allen


This paper describes how one can format the same document in any of three different styles: screen, manuscript and poster. The screen style is used to format output for a computer screen or lcd projector presentation, the manuscript package is used for printed publication, and the poster package will generate a conference poster presentation. These styles are used with the LaTeX /article/ class. This paper gives the implementation details of the three styles, and also shows examples of their usage.
