I stumbled upon this essay this morning, and as I am a mathematical typesetting nerd, I was utterly fascinated. H/T to Dennis A.V. Dittrich.
I have updated the page about LaTeX with new information on guides to LaTeX, found near the top.
In my ongoing effort to make reading this site more pleasant for all users, I just changed the theme to a brand new one called Typominima. Please refer to the footer for a link.
UPDATE: Typominima broke the site. Back to the default. See the comment.
This site looks good on Mac OS X and Linux computers. Due to limitations of the way Windows renders online text, the fancy fonts (Adobe Minion Pro for text and Adobe Myriad for headlines, both via typekit.com) appear pixellated on Windows, which forced me to use Windows-only fonts for visitors using Windows operating systems. To see the site in its full elegance, if you use a Windows machine, why not install Ubuntu Linux, side-by-side with Windows, and use the Linux side to browse? It’s safer, too!
