The more we search,
the More are we Deceived.
” MERCY OTIS WARREN, To Mr. Adams (1773)

A heavy weight is now to be removed from my conscience.
So essential did I consider an Index to be to every book,
that I proposed to bring a Bill into Parliament
to deprive an author who publishes a book without an Index
of the privilege of copyright; and, moreover,
to subject him, for his o¬ence, to a pecuniary penalty.
Yet, from di¬culties started by my printers,
my own books have hitherto been without an Index.
” LORD CAMPBELL, Lives of the Chief Justices of England, vol. 3 (1857)

from around the world have banded together to form the TEX Users Group
(TUG), in order to exchange information about common problems and solutions.
A newsletter/journal called TUGboat has been published since 1980,
featuring articles about all aspects of TEX and . TUG has a network
of “site coordinators” who serve as focal points of communication for people
with the same computer con¬gurations. Occasional short courses are given, to
provide concentrated training in special topics; videotapes of these courses are
available for rental. Meetings of the entire TUG membership are held at least
once a year. You can buy T-shirts at these meetings.
