Hypertext Help with LaTeX


 text \= more text \= still more text \= last text \\

The tabbing environment provides a way to align text in columns. It works by setting tab stops and tabbing to them much the way you do with an ordinary typewriter.

The tabular environment also aligns text in columns, but there are several important differences.

Tabbing commands

The \hspace command is useful for controlling horizontal space in the tabbing environment.

Note that the commands \=, \', and \` normally produce accents over the subsequent letter. These commands are redefined in the tabbing environment; in this environment it is possible to get the accents by using \a=, \a', and \a`, respectively.
