the newsletter may range from articles on advanced TeX programming, TeX
implementations, newer macros, developments in markup languages with
special reference to TeX, new software/literature releases that may be
interest to TeX programmers, etc., to courses and seminars organised by
TUGIndia and International TeX Users Group as well.

Formal inaugural ceremony would be somewhere at the end of December 1997
or early January 1998 depending upon the availability of Mr. Sebastian Rahtz
