I'm increasingly fed up with the arbitrary restrictions that the standard LaTeX letter class has. Today I discovered that the table environment is not defined in the standard letter class, which means one can't use labels or captions.
CTAN has a list of letter related packages.
Can anyone suggest a good LaTeX letter class to work with for general use? I'd like something as flexible and with as few restrictions as possible, well maintained, not excessively complicated to use, and not buggy. I was earlier recommended
newlfm (on comp.text.tex). That post was about the fact that the letter class does not allow the addition of a subject.
A similar question has been asked already, "A clean letter class for office use, including serial letters", where
scrlttr2 is recommended.
