The writer uses markup tagging conventions to define the general structure of a document (such as article, book, and letter), to stylize text throughout a document (such as bold and italics), and to add citations and cross-references. A TeX distribution such as TeX Live or MikTeX is used to produce an output file (such as PDF or DVI) suitable for printing or digital distribution. Within the typesetting system, its name is stylized as LATEX. Wikipedia
