Hi Robin,

The LaTeX workshop is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, July 25th.  During 
the year, many questions such as the one below has been asked.  Was a list 
of these questions/concerns compiled?  Will they be part of the "do this 
to get this" in the workshop sessions?  What about editors ... I use "vi" 
(vim) on Linux operating system.  What about how eps files are used by 
LaTeX ... simple conversion package from Xfig-LaTeX ... using icons (in 
Xfig) to draw the diagram and including highly complex mathematical 
equations within the diagram/figure?  What about "beamer" package for 
slide presentations ... simple instructions on how to use this package 
would be very helpful... will there be anyone to give simple 
examples/templeates on how this package is used ... what about color 
packages for LaTeX files on Linux OS?  I know this is a bit late with 
these questions ... just curious.
