LaTeX is a document preparation system for high-quality typesetting based on TeX. It is most often used for medium-to-large technical or scientific documents, but it can be used for almost any form of publishing. It is not a word processor; instead, it encourages authors not to worry too much about the appearance of their documents, but to concentrate on getting the right content.
