chicago.bst certainly doesn't conform to the chicago manual of style, e13.

i don't know how to get true chicago. this is close, but it generates some errors. i can't figure out how to fix it. :(

got it!

get ChicagoReedWeb.bst here and then apply this patch:

*** ChicagoReedWeb.bst  Wed Mar 14 10:53:28 2007
--- ChicagoJLR.bst      Mon Nov 16 04:12:33 2009
***************
*** 139,149 ****
  { add.period$
    write$
    newline$
-   annote missing$
-     { "\bibAnnoteFile{" cite$ * "}" * write$ newline$ }
-     { "\bibAnnote{" cite$ * "}{" * annote * "}" * write$ newline$
-     }
-   if$
  }

  FUNCTION {new.block}
--- 139,144 ----


:D

i don't know what those \bibAnnote{} and \bibAnnoteFile{} functions do, but they were making a mess. all better!

i keep getting A4 pages, even though i use this line:

\documentclass[letterpaper]{article}

what's the deal?! D:

adding this fixes it:

\usepackage[letterpaper]{geometry}

why do i need an extra package?!

btw, i'm using miktex and `pdflatex abc.tex` to generate the pdf.

thinks darkness is his ally
latex-based quizzes and tests for upcoming econ class:

testpoints.tex
pretest1312010.tex
pretest1312010.pdf

problem:

hanging indents don't work by default inside of the question environment. they also don't work for text inside of the question environment when applied to the whole document.

non-solutions:

* i attempted to wrap relevant portions of the question environment/document with the <tt>hangparas</tt> environment (available through the <tt>hanging</tt> package). This did nothing to the text, but modified the <tt>\choice</tt>s inadvertently.

* i attempted to enclose the relevant question text in several latex containers, all to no avail:
** <tt>\makebox[width][align]{text}</tt>
** <tt>\parbox[align]{text}</tt>
** <tt>\mbox</tt>

solution:

<tt>\hangindent=width</tt>

To indent subsequent lines of a paragraph, use the TeX command \hangindent. (While the default behavior is to apply the hanging indent after the first line, this may be changed with the \hangafter command.) An example follows.

<tt>\hangindent=0.7cm This paragraph has an extra indentation at the left.</tt>



r3: leaving <tt></tt> inline for neural rendering by reader

Does anyone know how to write a function definition in multiple cases in a way that allows you to add a label to each case?

Something like this:

        /
        | 1, if x > 0   (1)
f(x) = <
        | 0, otherwise  (2)
        \

no, i think that would be pretty difficult. i'd guess that you would need to do a hack job with it. for example, but the two lines on the right into a box or frame or something, then use a math mode to to label the lines separately.

good luck!

Gave up and just went with "the first case of Equation~\ref{eq:foo}" or whatever.
