Well, it should work.  Of course, I was assuming you were using LaTeX, but
then you didn't bother to say.

I didn't have a link, but googling The UK TEX FAQ Your 322 Questions gets
the latest version first time (which has been updated to 338 so it's
actually Q. 182).

But the question is: why am I doing the googling for you?

But many of them explain a little of what they do and can be modified.

I assume you missed the "Gentle Introduction to TeX" (distributed with
MiKTeX), see page 28 in the English version.

Not at all.
