EXTENSION File Type

  · No PostScript figures
.dvz DVI file only
  · No PostScript figures
  · Compressed with gzip (not pkzip!)

TeX/LaTeX Archive Submissions

TeX files and archives may be transferred for conversion. However, even though the following file extensions define the conversion process, this is not recommended! FastLane uses the MikTeX (1.20e) compiler, and your TeX/LaTeX compiler, macros, style files, etc., may be different. You should upload the DVI file instead.
