Example text

In addition, a small value of \hsize obviously makes it more difficult to set lines and causes more overfull and underfull hboxes to be reported. These are warnings that you ignore at your own peril! Adding new possibilities of hyphenation will sometimes eliminate an overfull box. TEX has automatic hyphenation and usually finds good places to hyphenate a word; however, it’s possible to add hyphenations to let lines break at new places. For example, the automatic hyphenation will never put a hyphen in the word “database”.

Thus \centerline{\bf A bold title} will produce a centred boldface line, and the text following that line will be in whatever font was in effect before the \centerline was invoked. The empty group {} is useful. One use allows accents to be typeset with no accompanying letter. For example, \~{} will print a tilde with no letter under it. It can also be used to stop TEX from eating up consecutive spaces. Hence I use \TeX{} all the time will leave a space after “TEX” in the output. This is an alternative to using \ as we did in Section 1.

Using \matrix instead of \pmatrix will leave off the parentheses, so the delimiters must be explicitly included using \left and \right.
