1.3.1. General Description

foiltex is a LaTeX document class which lets you create foils using most of the available LaTeX commands and environments.

Different options let you specify head and/or foot rules, title pages, etc. The macro \MyLogo together with the graphics or graphicx package let's you put some graphic as the logo on every page (placed at the left part of the footline).

Processing a foiltex sourcefile using LaTeX creates DVI output in the usual way, using pdfTeX (pdfLaTeX) allows you to create high quality PDF output. With latex2html and the FoilHTML package (look for it at your nearest CTAN mirror) you can create HTML output from your foiltex source files.
