Chapter 11 Styles

Print and PDF output is created when PreTeXt outputs a file, which can subsequently be easily converted to PDF with engines like pdflatex and xelatex. There are many ways to influence the style (look, appearance) of this output, enhancing the content, but without changing it. This chapter is directed at publishers who desire to create an attractive and consistent design for their books or articles.

Please read this chapter thorougly once before embarking. Certain important points are made in certain contexts, yet are universally applicable. If you cherry-pick, you will miss them. Note also that some simple changes, like font size, are described in Chapter 5.
