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
