I run a cheat sheet website, and at the moment producing PDFs of the cheat sheets is a nightmare. I would like to find an easier system, and I'm wondering if LaTeX might be it. I've not used LaTeX a lot, though I do find it very useful when I do use it, so I've not got the experience to be able to tell if LaTeX can handle the kind of layout I need to reproduce.

Enough waffling ... this is how the cheat sheets are laid out:


Can anybody tell me if LaTeX could handle this kind of layout?

This looks simple. You want

  • a threecolumn layout: Use multicol
  • colors: Use xcolor
  • some kind of sections: Use tabular together with xcolor
