PracTeX stands for “practical TeX” and focuses on the techniques and experiences of LaTeX and TeX users in document production. In the TeX community there are many opportunities for expert users and developers to share information but there are relatively few for beginning, intermediate, and production users. By providing more practical materials and opportunities for this large group of users the TeX community can grow and TeX can become more widely used. In this brief talk I will describe what “practical” TeX is, examine a few of the current offerings, and suggest some ideas that might be implemented in the future.
