       amstex - structured text formatting and typesetting

       amstex [ first line ]

       This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The complete documentation for this ver-
       sion of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

       The AmSTeX language is described in the book The Joy of TeX.  AmSTeX is a TeX macro  pack-
       age,  not  a  modification to the TeX source program, so all the capabilities described in
       tex(1) are present.

       The AmSTeX macros encourage writers to think about the content of their documents,  rather
       than  the  form.   The ideal, not always realized, is to have no formatting commands (like
       ``switch to italic'' or ``skip 2 picas'') in the document at all; instead,  everything  is
       done by specific markup instructions: ``emphasize'', ``start a section''.

       AmSTeX is the official typesetting system of the American Mathematical Society, and nearly
       all of its publications are typeset using AmSTeX.  The online version of AMS Math  Reviews
       uses  AmSTeX  input  syntax for display of mathematical material.  AMS authors can provide
       editors with computer-readable AmSTeX files.

       For authors more familiar with LaTeX, an AMS-supported package called  amsmath.sty  is  is
