which shows the danger of googling.  the very first command definition
in the page is *wrong*:

  \\ start a new paragraph.

\\ does _not_ start a new paragraph, it produces a break in the
existing paragraph.

much of (what i've read of) the page is ok, but i would hesitate to
recommend it ... the author hasn't _really_ understood what (s)he's
writing about.

this looks rather better.  nicely laid-out page, too.
