I'm Edd. I'm a Computer Science graduate from the University of Bath, currently working as a software developer at Ocado, in Hatfield, UK. I've experience working in a number of industries, including military and civil engineering, and working on very different types of project.

I reguarly code in C, C++ and Objective-C, and have experience using Python, Java, PHP and Ada as well as the basics such as Bash-scripting. I'm keen to learn C# and the .Net framework in the near future. I'm happy to work with html and XML, and I typeset the vast majority of my university work using LaTeX.

Outside of work, I'm a keen photographer. I'm a Canon user, shooting with a 5D. I'm interested in landscapes and cityscapes, as well as bits of sports photography. I'm wanting to learn more about how I can use flash to enhance my photos.

revised How much time does it take to learn LaTeX?
Removed [word-to-latex] tag, as this seems to be used more for questions about converting a document, not learning LaTeX but having a Word background.

revised Hard whitespace
Removed greeting, tidied up grammar. Not convinced it is a relevant answer but it's better for while it remains on the site.

comment Hard whitespace
@PEdroArthur The issue, I think, is more that there have been a number of suggested solutions using plain TeX, and using plain TeX is one of the main requirements of the question. Because your suggestion does not use plain TeX, it can't be considered a valid answer, and is superfluous.

comment XML highlighting - different style for attributes
Absolutely no problem. I was just curious as to whether this fixed your problem or whether there was something deeper to investigate. I'm not so fussed about the upvote/answer to be honest!

comment Replacing greek glyphs in math mode
Hi Christoph! Welcome to tex.sx! This is a very good question, that unfortunately I don't feel able to answer, but someone probably will! It's not necessary to sign your questions or answers (as there is already a box with your username below it) or to begin them with a greeting, as this is more of a q&a site than a conventional forum.

Welcome to tex.sx! A tip: If you indent lines by 4 spaces, then they are marked as a code sample. You can also highlight the code and click the "code" button (with "101010" on it).
