A computer science lecturer at University College London. I do stuff in logic, theorem proving, program analysis and verification. I'm a very enthusiastic TeX/LaTeX user, most days.

I also run a small site for LaTeX beginners in spanish: LaTeX Fácil.

comment Force figure placement in text
I don't think that the usual concerns are about saving space, rather than stylistically trying to find the best place where to place a figure, table, etc.

comment Where to find bibliography style files conforming to natbib format?
@alexis, your suggested query on CTAN is probably a good start. One could grab those URLS, look at their corresponding README files, typeset some examples to see the output, and put them together on a nice new answer. :)

comment Where to find bibliography style files conforming to natbib format?
@alexis, thanks a lot for trying to improve your answer. Please note I did not mean that your answer was not satisfactory; the exact opposite! I think it is immensely valuable and does answer the question. Also thanks for your edits and suggested google queries, they seem to be quite useful too. What I was looking for, however, was to go in the exact oposite direction: I don't want more choices! I want less! That's why I suggested listing some common styles, so that I can have a look, pick something that looks nice, but that someone crafted carefully and made sure that works well.

comment How can I get rid of indentation after an equation?
Thanks @RyanReich :) Although for full disclaimer, I was actually pretending to be a novice user when I wrote this question. I was very involved with the site at the beginning, from area51 and through the early beta.

comment Why should I use LaTeX?
Sure, I also find LaTeX a lot easier to use! But, my point is, it is not always easier to learn. Most people will find no trouble clicking trough Word in order to create some basic document, without having to read any sort of manual, it's just intuitive. But my claim is that trying to create a basic document in LaTeX without following any template, guide or manual, is going to be a much more difficult task. (Except, of course, if you are using something like LyX, but then I'll say that's cheating :P)

comment Why should I use LaTeX?
@Nasser Sure, I guess this is subjective, and different people might have different opinions. Anyway, what I had in mind was a comparison against most “point&click” systems to which people are typically used to, where you can intuitively find your way around without having to read a manual. I've edited the answer to make this more clear.

comment Why no vertical-mode Knuth-Plass?
From these answers I gather that it was a problem, given the computing limitations at the time. But has anybody tried to implement something like this now? Would it be feasible?
