Using Tex for Newbies with plain text editor ?


Hi,

Anyone using Tex with a plain text editor.

Would you know a nicely written book to learn Tex - word processing?

Aim is to write master piece (Ph.d.).

Thank you

I can personally vouch for

THe LATEX Companion (I have the 2nd Ed.) by Frank Mittelbach and Michel Goossens (with Johannes Braams, David Carlisle, and Chris Rowley) ISBN-13: 978-0-201-36299-2 / ISBN-10 0-201-36299-6. [Amazon UK]

It's currently on sale at Amazon UK for 23.

I am not saying this is the ultimate LATEX book (It's the only one I have used for a significant period of time). I have found it an invaluble resouce.

Beyond that a quick google is often the way forward.

As for pure TEX I reaally can't cpmment.
