We will offer three classes on the first day of the Practical TeX 2005 conference, at no additional cost. Please sign up on the registration page, so the teachers can plan accordingly.
If you are interested in particular topics being covered, please email us. If you're interested, most likely others are too, and we can probably find a teacher.
