|Historically, the main issue with LaTeX
papers concerned the use of Type3 fonts which are then represented in
the final PDF file as images. Most current LaTeX installations no longer use
Type3 fonts but some problems do still arise.
Type1 and TrueType fonts are more compact and also allow the text to be identified and searched. It is therefore essential for JACoW that papers do not use Type3 fonts for the text.
The template files include examples of how to correctly typeset most common features in a JACoW compliant way.
|The JACoW style requires that titles
are set in uppercase and it is necessary to do this explicitly in LaTeX.
Care should be taken to ensure that specific exceptions are coded correctly
e.g. "... OPERATIONS AT 4TeV PER BEAM...".
|Tables and Figures|
|Use relative pathnames when referring
to external files, this makes the source more portable. e.g.
"../graphs/jp104-f1.eps" and not the complete path to the file.
Full page width tables and figures can be obtained by using the figure* and table* environments.
Graphics can be incorporated using the includegraphics command available in the graphics package of LaTeX2e . This package will allow re-sizing and rotation of the graphics, which are preferably in encapsulated postscript format.
|New dense list environments Itemize, Enumerate and Description are available with the JACoW class file. These allow a much more economical use of the space whilst the original versions itemize, enumerate and description remain available.|
|Making the Postscript|
|Please use the -j0 option with dvips to
avoid sub-setting fonts which makes compilation of a book version of the
proceedings very difficult.
The version of dvips in use varies but in general one should use the switch which limits the output resolution to 600dpi (-D600) and watch out for the -K option which concerns the removal of document structuring comments from included graphics (these can sometimes confuse the printer and prevent printing).
The postscript file should be made with first-page first, not reverse order.
