A collection of links to computing- related
sites. This list is not at all comprehensive, and has no ambitions to
be, either. It's just a collection of links that I find useful. (It's
my web-site, so being self-centred is the order of the day).
(comprehensive TeX archive network)
The repositary of all things TeX and LaTeX.
- A (not so) short introduction to
No, that's its title, not my description of it. Possibly the best
freely available LaTeX book on the web.
- A simplified introduction to LaTeX
Another freely available LaTeX book, which complements the "(Not
so) Short" nicely.
The AMS maths package (part of most LaTeX distributions), and
its associated documentation.
- Online LaTeX reference
Hypertext Help with LaTeX from NASA, an online reference for
LaTeX commands and concepts. Similar things can be found at
University, the University
of Southern Queensland and no doubt many others.
A gentle introduction to TeX
A freely available TeX - not LaTeX - book (even LaTeX'ers
need to delve into raw TeX occasionally...).
The only web browser out there to get within spitting distance of
100% W3C standards-compliance. Which makes it very useful for
developing first versions of web sites (before you put in all
those hacks to get it to work in browsers that implement the
standards...er...less than perfectly).
- Mozilla/Netscape side-bar
Sidebar for Mozilla and Netscape browsers with quick-references
W3C HTML site
World Wide Web consortium HTML site (they're the guys who set the
standards), including an HTML
validator and an HTML
- HTML 4.0 reference
HTML 4.0 reference from the Web
Cascading Style Sheets
- W3C CSS site
World Wide Web consortium CSS site (they set the CSS standards),
including a CSS
validator, the CSS
standard itself, and many useful links and other info. The
style sheets used on the site itself are good examples to learn
- Complete CSS Guide
Very good CSS1+2 guide from WestCiv.
- CSS2 reference
CSS2 reference taken straight from the standards published by the
W3C, with examples added. Useful for the technicalities.
- Browser compatibility chart
CSS browser-compatibility chart from RichInStyle.com. Also
available from the same site: comprehensive browser bug
descriptions, HTML and CSS1+2 tutorials, a
tester, and a lot of other useful web-design info.
Online manual for half the enlightened world's favourite text
editor. (Note for vi users: if you read carefully you'll see
that sentence was not an insult.)
Emacs LISP Manual
Online manual for the Emacs LISP dialect.
The Emacs Wiki. Obviously.
Extremely well designed open source spam-reduction software, based
around a challenge/response system on steroids. (See my email page to find out how to contact me
at my TMDA-protected address.)
- Mutt manual
Where would we be without this scruffy, flea-ridden email
