How to write (La)TeX (with braces) [or any other TeX-related logo]

I came across the tug tutorial, and writing down the very first basic example of printing simple document.

My LaTeX file is:

mt4k@laptop:$ cat myfile.tex 
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
This is my \emph{first} document prepared in \Latex.
\end{document}

I am getting the following message for \Latex:

mtk4@laptop:$ latex myfile.tex 
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian)
entering extended mode
(./myfile.tex

                                                  .
?

In the output pdf, the Latex word has been omitted. Can anyone tell me how to print words in that fashion? (In a way similar as the word 'LATEX' is printed in the pdf in the link above)

Please let me know if you need more info. Also I have searched the SO and this site, and couldn't find any similar question, If I have missed out, please point me to it.

It's \LaTeX not \Latex. Macro names are case-sensitive. –  Martin Scharrer May 20 '12 at 13:27
    
Cool. Silly mistake :) Thanks. –  mtk May 20 '12 at 13:29

You should use \LaTeX and not \Latex.

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
This is my \emph{first} document prepared in \LaTeX.
\end{document}
