[howto] Excel 2 Latex


It's difficult to create tables in LaTeX, especially if some columns are
calculated. Excel2LaTeX allows you to transform the current selection from
Excel to Latex. Most of the formating will be kept (bold, italic, border
lines, multicolumn cells, etc.). The LaTeX code can be copied to the
clipboard or saved as a LaTeX file, which then can be included in an
existing LaTeX document using the \input command.

[howto] JabRef reference manager for BibTex

JabRef is an open source bibliography reference manager. The native file format used by JabRef is BibTeX, the standard LaTeX bibliography format. JabRef runs on the Java VM (version 1.5 or newer), and should work equally well on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
