Welcome to the beginnings of Tufte LaTeX package to help you produce Tufte-style handouts, reports, and notes.

Quick Start

Try typesetting sample-handout.tex with the following sequence of commands,

pdflatex sample-handout
bibtex   sample-handout
pdflatex sample-handout
pdflatex sample-handout

The result should look like sample-handout.pdf.

The sample book can be compiled with the following:

pdflatex sample-book
bibtex sample-book
texindy --language english sample-book.idx
# or makeindex sample-book.idx
pdflatex sample-book
pdflatex sample-book
pdflatex sample-book


If you encounter errors of the form,
