I'm a beginner in latex, I understand that latex requires a Tex editor to compile the code and a distribution to get the libraries installed. However, there are many concepts that still I want expert to clarify.
Situation: I'm typing up a CV, which uses a package called fontspec, and a thing call XeTex ( an engine? I believe this is an "engine" which serves as an extension of the compiler (tex editor) e.g. texmaker. where you can choose what engine to build the tex.file. (Please tell me if i'm wrong). I installed MikTex 2.9, but it seems that they don't have XeTex but only Xelatex Then , i tried to find a way to build using XeTex using Texmaker?? I googled and noticed there is a thing call TexLive2014 which seems to provide Xetex, but i don't know how to run the XetEx in Texlive using texmaker.
this link contains XeTex and fontspec I want to download and use. http://nitens.org/taraborelli/cvtex
my problem is Where do you place your fontspec? where should it go that allows me to import it as a package? Is there a way to know what file path you are at which imports the library from? I currently placed it here.
filepath:C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9
Finally,what's the difference between Latex and Tex? Xetex and Xelatex? these terms have been really confusing to a beginner like me, but trivial to almost everyone. It would be very good if anyone could see this page in the future to know everything in one question. This is the first time of me posting question. Please tell me if I have anything to improve such as question style. Thanks in advance everyone.
