Some notes, mainly for personal use

  1. For TAIT only: Bold math symbols look strange in our poster style.

    Please look at this example.

  2. Private installation of packages.

    See this article in the texfaq.

  3. How to use UTF-8?

    simply replace \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc} with \usepackage[utf8]{inputencoding}

  4. Vertical centering?

    \vspace*{\fill} SOMETHING \vspace*{\fill}

  5. Vertical alignment of graphics
